Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Rutledge is a city of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Rutledge who work in office and administrative support (13.64%), food service (9.94%) and management occupations (8.24%).

Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 8.85% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. 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 city 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, Rutledge is worth considering.
