[Infographic] White, Grey, and Blue Collar Workers: Who They Are and What They Think

Following the inaugural survey of America’s blue collar workers in 2018, Express Employment Professionals has partnered once again with The Harris Poll to learn more about how today’s white collar workers compare with blue collar employees and those who fall in the middle-grey collar professions.

Despite a similar outlook of the future, regardless of collar color, the survey revealed American workers have substantial student loan debt, are not saving enough for retirement, but feel their jobs provide a good living for the present.

Time to Fall Back and Gain an Hour

If getting out of bed while it’s still dark outside is getting old, have no fear. This weekend, that all changes.

At 2 a.m. on Sunday, most of North America, and other countries around the world, will gain an hour as daylight saving time comes to a close. Daylight saving time (DST) was first implemented to save energy and make better use of daylight in Thunder Bay, Canada, in 1908, according to Timeanddate.com. A daylight saving time law was introduced and signed by United States President Woodrow Wilson in 1918, but it was repealed only seven months later. DST has undergone several changes since then, but was more regulated in 1966 under the Uniform Time Act. The act established one pattern across the country, exempting states in which the legislatures voted to opt out.

Despite gaining an hour of sleep this weekend, you may actually feel even more tired than usual when you go into work on Monday morning. Follow these great tips to make the transition as smooth as possible.
