Toledo is a tiny city located in the state of Washington. With a population of 721 people and just one neighborhood, Toledo is the 254th largest community in Washington.
Occupations and Workforce
Unlike some cities, Toledo isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Toledo are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Toledo is a city of sales and office workers, service providers and transportation and shipping workers. There are especially a lot of people living in Toledo who work in sales jobs (21.12%), office and administrative support (14.91%) and food service (9.32%).
Another important characteristic of Toledo is that a lot of people work in agricultural jobs, especially compared to most other communities in America, and there are quite a number of farms in town.
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 17.39% 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.
