Overtime for Blue Collar Workers

“Blue collar” workers are those who perform work involving “repetitive operations with their hands, physical skill and energy” and who “gain the skills and knowledge required for performance of their routine manual and physical work through apprenticeships and on-the-job training.”

Blue collar workers include, but are not limited to, manual laborers, carpenters, electricians, mechanics, plumbers, craftsmen, operating engineers, longshoremen, iron workers, construction workers, and non-management production-line employees.

Non-management employees in these fields are entitled to minimum wage and overtime premium pay requirements set forth under the FLSA. These individuals are not considered “exempt” under Section 13(a) of the FLSA as bona fide executive, administrative, professional or outside sales employees. This is the case regardless of how highly compensated these individuals are.
