Occupations and Workforce
Marble is a decidedly white-collar town, with fully 86.67% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.

There are especially a lot of people living in Marble who work in management occupations (31.67%), sales jobs (21.67%) and teaching (13.33%).
Setting & Lifestyle
Another notable thing is that Marble 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, Marble’s population drops significantly, such that year-round residents will notice that the city is a much quieter place to live.
As is often the case in a small town, Marble doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
