Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, St. James City is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, St. James City is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in St. James City who work in office and administrative support (18.32%), sales jobs (16.46%) and healthcare (12.30%).
Of important note, St. James City is also a town of artists. St. James City has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape St. James City’s character.
A relatively large number of people in St. James City telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 10.38% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Setting & Lifestyle
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, St. James City is worth considering.
One of the nice things about St. James City is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.
As is often the case in a small town, St. James City doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
