 Turns of Phrase: Gold-collar worker
Recently the term pink-collar worker has been invented to describe the female equivalent of the (assumed male) blue-collar worker, which is particularly applied to women who assemble electronic equipment and run back-office data-entry systems (the term may have originated in the title of a book by Louise Kapp Howe in 1977).
Once there was a real distinction in clothing between blue-collar workers and white-collar workers out of which the figurative sense of manual versus clerical staff evolved.

 “Corporation” is not a dirty word
The new lexicon has adapted to show that an industrialist is greedy by default, while a blue-collar worker on the factory floor is seen as the new heroic ideal.
To clarify this point, a factory worker, in general terms, will jump on a better paying job at any old factory across town for no better reason than a fatter wallet, even if it means sacrificing a job with an industry he may truly be passionate about.
The reason, then, why the industrialist is called greedy is because of his passion, while at the same time, a worker is called noble because of his low paycheck boils down to nothing more than true avarice on the part of the workers.
