Sales

Of the approximately 1.8 million sales workers employed by wholesalers and manufacturers, 372,590 work for an industry called wholesale electronic markets and agents and brokers. These wholesaler businesses arrange for the sale of goods owned by others. They do not take title to the goods but generally receive a fee or commission for their service of bringing sellers and buyers together. This industry is dominated by small business operations; a little less than 80 percent of the establishments had fewer than five paid employees in 2011.
