Unlike some towns where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Minden is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Minden is a town of service providers, sales and office workers, and professionals. There are especially a lot of people living in Minden who work in food service (13.58%), office and administrative support (12.78%), and teaching (11.50%).
One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 8.79% 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.
The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy.
