Currently the major "industries" in Traer are education and healthcare.  Our school system employs the largest number; including principals, teachers, aides, counselors, dietary personnel, bus drivers, and support staff. 
Sunrise Care Campus is not far behind in the number of employees, inlcuding, nurses, aides, therapists, dietary personnel, and support staff.

Along with our largers employers, the small business owners provide employment opportunities as well. From truck driving to waitressing to sales, there are many other jobs in Traer.   

Local businesses are responsible for giving many of our high school students their first real jobs.  Much can be learned from that grocery store, newspaper office or convenience store experience.
