People in those jobs around here look like people in all the jobs, predominantly white but a mixture of the same minorities you see when you're out shopping or festival hopping or doing anything else.

    And we are getting Latinos, Indians, Pakistanis, Chinese and other immigrants moving in but they don't concentrate in any sectors I can see out in daily community life.
