The study provides data from employers in food and beverage services, accommodation services, recreation and entertainment, and travel services. It contains information on type of compensation (e.g. hourly or annual), salary range minimum, salary range maximum, and median salary for 30 occupations in the sector.
This data is broken down by region, industry group, employment status (full-time, part-time, seasonal), and union status.
The study also includes data on businesses’ policies around gratuities, benefits, perquisites and incentives, number of employees, and bonus payout. Moreover, in response to the changing landscape of compensation across the country, the study also collected data on the impact of minimum wage increases on businesses in the sector.
