Leisure and Hospitality Employment


REPORT - by www.ustravel.org


While the overall U.S. jobs market has now surpassed pre-pandemic levels, the Leisure & Hospitality (L&H) industry still remains far behind in its recovery of lost, and desperately needed, jobs.

  • At 6.5%, L&H has a higher share of jobs still lost than any industry except for mining

  • With 1.1 million jobs still lost, L&H losses far exceed those of any other industry

This underscores how disproportionately the L&H sector was, and continues to be, impacted by the pandemic. The attached slides decks analyze the latest trends in the L&H industry.
