In City of Clerks Jerome P. Bjelopera traces the shifting occupational structures and work choices that facilitated the emergence a while-collar workforce.

He describes the educational goals, workplace cultures, leisure activities, and living situations that melded disparate groups of young men and women into a new class of clerks and salespeople. Previously neglected by historians, these young clerks became the backbone of industrial-era businesses and a key to their success. By surveying business school records, census and directory records, and business archival materials, Bjelopera paints a fascinating picture of the lives led by philadelphias male and female clerks, both inside and outside the workplace, as they formed their own clubs, affirmed their whiteness.

and even challenged sexual norms. By mapping the relationship between these workers self-expectations and the shitting demands of their employers, City of Clerks reveals how the notion of white collar shifted over half a century.
