Cobblers - Wages & Trends

Wages vary by area of the country and the worker's level of skill. In addition, wages are affected by the quality of the products that workers repair. In general, shoe and leather workers earn more by repairing high-quality products.

Self-employed shop owners must provide their own health and retirement benefits. Shoe and leather workers who are not self-employed and work full time often receive benefits. Typical benefits include sick leave, paid vacation, and health insurance.
