The Effects of Year-Round Schools on the Hospitality Industry's Seasonal Labor Force in the State of Tennessee.
Pickeral, Lyn M.; Hubbard, Susan
Journal of Human Resources in Hospitality and Tourism, v1 n1 p49-58 2002
Data collected from 66 managers in Tennessee tourist attractions indicate that 53 percent of seasonal workers in Tennessee come from the school system. The proposal to implement year-round schools would drastically increase the tourism industry's labor shortage. An alternative labor force needs to be identified and the issue of year-round schools addressed. (JOW)
