The median annual wage of glaziers was $36,640 in May 2010. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $22,760, and the top 10 percent earned more than $66,810.
The starting pay for apprentices usually is between 30 percent and 50 percent of what fully trained glaziers make, receiving pay increases as they gain more skill.
Most glaziers work full time. About 5 percent of glaziers were self-employed in 2010; self-employed workers are often able to set their own schedule.
