Occupations and Workforce
Cuba is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Cuba is a city of managers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Cuba who work in management occupations (30.67%), sales jobs (16.00%) and office and administrative support (8.00%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 13.33% 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

It is a fairly quiet city 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!) Cuba 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. Cuba has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Cuba than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Cuba may be for you.
Cuba is a small city, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
