Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Stilwell is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Stilwell is a town of professionals, managers and sales and office workers.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.86% 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.
