Occupations and Workforce
Jarreau is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs. Overall, Jarreau is a town of sales and office workers, managers and construction workers and builders.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 9.53% 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 Jarreau 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!) Jarreau 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. Jarreau has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Jarreau than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Jarreau may be for you.
Jarreau is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
