the working class:

The Enterprise and Economic Development Glossary defines community as . . . a place where people live, work, and share things in common (source of quote). A simple, definition of the working class is inferred from that by dividing the community into two classes of people: those who work and those who don't. That definition is skewed, however, by contrasting the downtrodden worker against and those who oppress them.

The meaning of working class can refer to a proletariat. Western history records clashes between the working class and an upper class (bourgeoisie). Events of industrial development seed the potential for clashes, e.g., the Industrial Revolution.

The proletariat contains so called blue collar workers, a term contrasted with white collar workers. Owners, managers, bosses, and other business decision makers are generally classified as white collars in contrast to those who figuratively wear blue shirts on the job. It's a misnomer to suggest that blue collars are simply laborers with limited education and skills, and deservedly neither treated with dignity nor paid a decent wage.
