Occupations and Workforce

A relatively large number of people in Nesquehoning telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 12.21% 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 borough 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, Nesquehoning is worth considering.
Being a small borough, Nesquehoning does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
