How to use collar in a sentence?

  1. James Brown:

    The economy is changing with an emphasis on technology skills across all sectors. The emphasis now is that not all STEM jobs require four-year degrees. When I was growing up, you had what were called ‘blue collar jobs,’ now you have technicians who need to be highly skilled in tech. You need people who can repair MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) machines, or work on electric cars, you now need technicians who need to have really hard STEM skills. That’s a skill set that will be growing over the next five years, it will be more in demand, and giving students the foundation for those kinds of careers starts in school.

  2. Susan Page:

    Bernie Sanders has exceeded nearly everyone's expectations in becoming the hero of Democratic progressives, to go to the next level -- to become not only Hillary Clinton's chief challenger but also a potential nominee -- he needs to expand that appeal to include other important parts of the Democratic coalition, including African Americans, Hispanics and blue-collar workers.

  3. Former President Bill Clinton:

    The truth is, the hubbub was I got hot under the collar because of the way the questions were asked. And I think what was lost were the two points that I made that are important to me, the suggestion was that I never apologized for what caused all the trouble for me 20 years ago.

  4. Chris Borick:

    If you were to design the perfect Trump location, the Lehigh Valley was that 25 years ago, it is a different place now. Some of the blue collar appeal that Trump may be having in other areas of the country or the state may have less of a target here.

  5. Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar:

    Over the years, I think we have seen just how devastating that is, and when I was there, I worked hard on, for instance, doing more when it came to white collar crime, doing more with drug courts. And while here were still disparities in our system, like there were any, we had still managed in the eight years to reduce the African-American incarceration rate by 12 %.
