How come a “blue chip” stock is splendid to hold while we are chary of “blue sky” stock?
There is another similar interesting example : A “blue-collar” worker is a manual laborer, yet a “blue-stocking” is a woman with intellectual inclinations……..isn’t this something interesting to think and to answer ?
Hello, may I answer your questions please? There is just my own opinion:
I think the word “blue” is really a kind of lower word compared with “white”. It’s just a habit for people to say it this way. Because people work for low payment always wear blue shirt, and meanwhile those people work in the office tend to wear white shirt and suit?
Thank you for reading my answer!
