While translating some text at work, I want to point out the difference between employees working in the same company, but over different schedules.
White collar workers
Work mostly from an office
Blue collar workers
Work mostly in labor-intensive activities (we are talking about the Oil & Gas industry)
Work over three 8-hour shifts, on rotation, and are usually blue-collar workers.
How do I point out the difference between a shift worker and someone who only works during the day, but is not necessarily a white-collar employee?
is not appropriate, as it reminds me of someone hired on a short term contract.
Feel free to suggest improvements to my original options.
