Occupations and Workforce
South Wales is neither predominantly blue-collar nor white-collar, instead having a mixed workforce of both blue-collar and white-collar jobs.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 7.46% 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.
Setting & Lifestyle
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.

If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.
South Wales is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
