Abstract

The white collar worker, as C. Wright Mills puts it, is one who "manipulates people and symbols, rather than things." His numbers have expanded spectacularly in the twentieth century, not least in the United States. His influence must be taken into account in any assessment of the main drift of American society—particularly in an examination of the nature and potential of trade unionism."
