Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Pine Mountain Club is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Pine Mountain Club is a town of sales and office workers, transportation and shipping workers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Pine Mountain Club who work in sales jobs (17.15%), office and administrative support (14.03%) and teaching (8.15%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.69% 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
Another notable thing is that Pine Mountain Club is an extremely popular destination for tourists and seasonal residents. So much of the population is seasonal such that the town’s population swells significantly during the vacation season, and drops again when the season ends. Because of this, much of the local economy is centered around tourism; some businesses may be operated only during the high season. During the low season, year-round residents will notice that the city is a substantially quieter place to live.
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!) Pine Mountain Club 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. Pine Mountain Club has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Pine Mountain Club than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Pine Mountain Club may be for you.
In Pine Mountain Club, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 34.97 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average.
