Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Remer is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Remer is a city of service providers, construction workers and builders, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Remer who work in personal care services (16.77%), maintenance occupations (9.58%), and food service (8.98%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.00% 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.
The city is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy.
