New-collar workers, la main-d’œuvre du 21e siècle

In the last century, there was a clear distinction between white collar and blue collar workers. Today, the line between these two categories is fading in favor of the “new-collar workers.”
 This neologism, introduced in 2016 by Ginni Rometty, CEO of IBM, will first apply to employees occupying new jobs in the digital industry analysts such as cyber security, application designers, specialists cloud computing, etc. (New-collar worker, wiki)
 Originally the concept, there is strong demand for skilled labor that the education system does not respond. In 2016, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (Bureau of Labor Statistics) attests to the phenomenon by showing, with supporting figures, that the demand for graduates in information and communications technology is already two times greater than supply. (TechForce Foundation, 2018)
 Therefore, players in the digital industry will reflect the skills required by these jobs to find that they require a combination of specific skills – that is acquired in a vocational or technical training – with a solution knowledge base of higher education, but not necessarily an undergraduate degree. (Ohm, 2018) Hence the intermediate positioning of the new collar workers. On this basis, they will invite companies to overcome the undergraduate degree as a condition of employment.
