A relatively large number of people in Washington telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 17.24% of the workforce works from home.

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
For a small town, there is also a high proportion of single, often educated, people living in Washington. This is not typical for smaller communities in America, and adds a feeling of vibrancy to Washington.
Being a small town, Washington does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
