Hrastnik is known for its former coal mining industry which supported growth of other industries. Cessation of mining industry resulted in issues involving depopulation and decrease in number of jobs. Many people are working in other municipalities, so the municipality has intense daily migration activity.

Cars are still the most common means of transportation for commuters travelling to work and to other parts of the region. Recently, there has been a small increase in number of jobs in Hrastnik. This may be a chance to change travel habits, since there are more jobs in biking and walking distance.
