Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Kennard is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Kennard is a city of service providers, sales and office workers and construction workers and builders. There are especially a lot of people living in Kennard who work in office and administrative support (15.83%), personal care services (11.67%) and teaching (9.17%).
A relatively large number of people in Kennard telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 7.63% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country. 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
Overall, Kennard’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.
