A relatively large number of people in Valentine telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 10.91% 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, Valentine’s crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation, which makes a great place to live if safety is an important concern.
