Trends in Hotel Employment
The American Action Forum released an infographic examining how the National Labor Relations Board’s broadened joint employer standard has affected the accommodations industry. AAF research finds that since 2015, the hotel industry has seen franchise job growth decline by 1.4 percentage points, driving a decline in job growth across the industry. While the entire private sector has seen a decline in labor market growth since the introduction of the standard, the trends are more apparent in the accommodations industry, indicating these declines are unlikely the result of broader macroeconomic forces.
