Occupations and Workforce

Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Pickford is a town of service providers, sales and office workers and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Pickford who work in office and administrative support (12.88%), sales jobs (10.49%) and law enforcement and fire fighting (10.17%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Pickford is a major vacation destination. Much of the town’s population is seasonal: many people own second homes and only live there part-time, during the vacation season. The effect on the local economy is that many of the businesses are dependent on tourist dollars, and may operate only during the high season. As the vacation season ends, Pickford’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Pickford has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Pickford a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
