Industry Update

Have Workers Moved on For Good From Hospitality?

Economists say the labor market shift away from hospitality could be a lasting one, as many workers took stock of the pandemic’s toll on the industry during the pandemic and decided to move onto another industry. The share of U.S. restaurant and hotel workers leaving their jobs hit a two-decade high in May at 5.7%, according to the Labor Department. Though the industry added jobs in June, employment in the industry remains down by 1.3 million jobs since the pandemic began. Among those working in travel and recreation, which include jobs such as catering managers, banquet servers and pastry chefs, 79% indicated they had moved to a new industry. WSJ.
