Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Sharon is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Sharon is a town of service providers, professionals and sales and office workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Sharon who work in food service (17.31%), management occupations (13.46%) and sales jobs (10.26%).
Of important note, Sharon is also a town of artists. Sharon has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Sharon’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.33% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. 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, Sharon is worth considering.
Sharon is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
