There are especially a lot of people living in La Grulla who work in office and administrative support (25.99%), healthcare suport services (12.30%) and personal care services (9.98%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.71% 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.
