Travel is a broad and diverse industry employing a vast workforce, from airline and attraction employees to restaurant, hotel and taxi workers. Travel is one of the country’s biggest employers with more than 10 million Americans depending on this industry for their paychecks. Everyday travel powers our economy in cities and states across the country. In fact, I’ve worked in the travel industry for 17 years and I depend on travelers to Utah Valley for my living. When people make the choice to travel here, it makes an enormous impact to all of Utah Valley’s residents who work in the industry, like me. And it even impacts those who don’t work in the industry.
