Out in the real world it varies. I've had jobs that paid once per month, twice a month, every other Thursday, every other Friday and one that paid every Friday. It's pretty much up to the employer how it's done, mostly a matter of what is convenient for the employer. My current real life job pays every other Friday. And, by the way, it has had nothing to do with blue, white or any color collar in my experience. I've been in IT for over 37 years.
