Apprentice  (APPRENTICE)

Various sub-groups of the category of employees (353-3) are sometimes distinguished. One such sub-group is home workers 1 or cottage workers 1, who work in their own homes, sometimes for several employers. Among the employees a distinction is sometimes made between manual workers 2 and non-manual workers 3 or clerical and office workers 3. Manual workers may be further sub-divided according to their skill 4, with skilled workers 5, semi-skilled workers 6, and unskilled workers 7 being distinguished. Apprentices 8 are sometimes shown as a sub-category of employees.

  • 2. Another type of classification of employees is that which distinguishes between wage earners who are paid daily or weekly and salaried employees who are paid monthly or at even less frequent intervals. The statistics of the United States distinguish four broad occupational categories: white collar workers; blue collar workers, including craftsmen, operatives and non-farm laborers; service workers; and farm workers (cf. 356).
  • 7. A laborer is an unskilled worker, who does physical work.
