Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Limestone is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Limestone is a town of sales and office workers, service providers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Limestone who work in office and administrative support (22.77%), sales jobs (9.89%) and business and financial occupations (6.91%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 8.54% 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.
