There are especially a lot of people living in Forsyth who work in maintenance occupations (16.45%), management occupations (16.12%) and teaching (14.64%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 10.22% 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.

Being a small city, Forsyth does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
