US Travel and Tourism Employment Report

Nearly half of the 16.9 million jobs in the leisure & hospitality (L&H) industry, as defined by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), were lost in March and April 2020. While 4.9 million jobs had been created or restored between April and November 2020, another 500,000 L&H jobs were lost in December 2020 and January 2021.

What you will learn:

  • As of the August 2021 jobs report, leisure and hospitality employment sits 10% below its pre pandemic level; this is three percentage points lower than the next most hard hit industry.
  • The leisure & hospitality industry accounted for 11% of pre pandemic employment in the United States yet represents 32% of all job losses through August 2021.
  • While the easing of pandemic related restrictions and widespread vaccine availability accelerated the employment recovery through the first seven months of 2021, growing concern over the Delta variant’s rapid spread stalled the recovery in August.

UK: Supply constraints are probably less prominent in the south

The extent to which UK employers can respond to likely 2024 interest rate cuts with increased output, rather than rises in prices and wages, will partly reflect the extent of spare capacity. This will inevitably vary by region. Evidence on this is imperfect, but in terms of capital assets (including intangibles) and labour availability, southern regions appear to be in a stronger position than those in the UK's traditional industrial heartland.
