US Travel Employment Growth Trends Upward in April
WASHINGTON, DC—The US travel industry continues to be an important asset in the nation's economic recovery, according to an April report released by the Labor Department. READER COMMENTS
The industry added 7,000 new American jobs last month. Growth was driven by the restaurants, lodging, and airline sectors, which offset declines in amusements, gambling, and recreation.
According to the report, travel-generated employment has risen by 48,700 in the first four months of 2012, contributing 6.1 percent of all non-farm jobs added during the same period.
However, David Huether, senior vice president of economics and research at the U.S. Travel Association, believes that there are still several facets of the industry that are preventing even greater growth and economic recovery.
"Even amidst this growth, barriers to travel abound—from airport security hassles and crumbling infrastructure to high fuel costs and a visa system that can deter overseas travelers from visiting the US," he said in an announcement. "Reducing or eliminating these barriers will strengthen our economy and create jobs by encouraging more Americans to travel the country and welcoming more international visitors to come to the US."
