Occupations and Workforce
When you are in Coker, you'll notice that it is more blue-collar than most other communities in America. 36.51% of Coker’s employed work in blue-collar jobs, while America averages only 27.7% that do. Overall, Coker is a town of sales and office workers, professionals and transportation and shipping workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Coker who work in sales jobs (20.63%), office and administrative support (8.39%) and management occupations (7.94%).
Of important note, Coker is also a town of artists. Coker has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Coker’s character.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.13% 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, Coker is worth considering.
Being a small town, Coker does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
