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

Is Harris perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.
It is a fairly quiet city because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Harris has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Harris has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Harris than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Harris may be for you.
Harris is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
