There are especially a lot of people living in Marshall who work in maintenance occupations (21.16%), management occupations (14.55%), and office and administrative support (8.20%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 12.57% 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 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.

As is often the case in a small town, Marshall doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
