Fosters Profile


Overview

Occupations and Workforce

There are especially a lot of people living in Fosters who work in office and administrative support (13.77%), management occupations (8.01%), and sales jobs (7.43%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 7.71% of people work from home.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

It is a fairly quiet town 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!) Fosters 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. Fosters has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Fosters than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Fosters may be for you.
