To answer this question, we looked at the latest figures from the Furniture Manufacturers Association. Their numbers show there are about 3.5 million people in the UK who work in the sector. To give you an idea of their numbers, the total workforce of the world’s furniture making firms is around 30 million people.
The average pay for the industry is $44,000 (£32,750) per year, which is around £34,000 per year more than the average income for a typical UK-born, full-time worker.
There are a number of factors that go into making this sort of wage, but the main thing they have in common is that there are a lot more of us on the factory floor and we come from a wider range of backgrounds.
The average hourly wage for someone responsible for finishing up production in our industry is £11 (about $16) and the average annual earnings for this part of the industry are around £20,000 (about $27,000).
Why so many workers?
It is a pretty big difference. If you compare a factory that makes a sofa for about £500,000 to a one that could produce an equivalent sofa for £500,000, it’s going to be the more expensive one in terms of production facilities.
The main reason you need to be skilled at something is that, for most of its lifespan, you won’t ever be able to make enough of it to pay back the investment.
You need people like yourself at the start because you don’t have huge funds on hand, and then you need to develop a system of training so you have the workforce you need as well. But the bigger the factory, the more skilled you become, the more capable you become of training others, and, finally, if the plant has been built for a long time, eventually the workforce you need grows bigger because of all the equipment it’s sitting at.
