Employment in this particular area is okay, but not the best because this town is in competition with many of the surrounding areas, especially the city of Philadelphia. Many residents in this community live here, but work elsewhere. Because this town is a short highway ride away from Philadelphia, people choose to simply reside here and work in the city. If such residents had a choice, they would rather work in this community than the city of Philadelphia because it is a much safer environment. However, because this town is surrounded by many other neighboring towns, it is not quite difficult to find a job in suburban Philadelphia.
