Travel industry adds jobs in spite of government shutdown
from Successful Meetings
Because of its impact on tourism — it cost the United States an estimated $152 million per day in economic output due to lost travel-related activity — the government shutdown could have easily hindered travel industry growth. Instead, the travel industry actually added 16,000 jobs in October and contributed more than 6 percent of October's total non-farm employment gains, according to the U.S. Travel Association, which released an analysis of the U.S. Department of Labor's October jobs report.
