Pig farmers probably weren’t too popular among the Jews, pigs being ‘unclean’ and all. But it appears to have been a profitable line of work, judging by the townpeople’s reaction: “The people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region” (Mark 5:17Mark 5:17

But there’s more to consider. Therer were lots of evil spirits rising from the cliff where the pigs died, and lots of townspeople who prefered them over the protective hand of God.
