A shop floor is the area of a factory, machine shop, etc. where people work on machines, or the space in a retail establishment where goods are sold to consumers. The term shop floor is in contrast to office, which is a space that provides accommodation to the business's management.
In the United Kingdom, saying someone works "on the shop floor" is often a metaphor for saying the person is working class.
