Method and data source

Although the leisure and hospitality industry is slowly recovering as the US continues to reopen and more people start to travel again, employment projections show the hotel industry could still end 2021 with fewer jobs than before the pandemic.

According to the American Hotel & Lodging Association, hotels are projected to see a loss of 478,245 jobs in 2021 relative to 2019 employment. The American Hotel & Lodging Association notes that the projections are based on just hotel property jobs, and don’t include losses in related businesses.

Hotels employ a wide variety of workers, and salaries range from well below the US median wage to very high paying.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics program offers data on employment and wages across different occupations and industries, including the traveler accommodation industry.

Hotel jobs tend to be lower paying than average. The median annual wage for an employee in the traveler accommodation industry was just $28,320, below the overall median wage of $41,950, in 2020 (the most recent data). Housekeepers, for example, earned just $25,320 per year in 2020.

The above slides are employment and wages for 37 select occupations in the hotel industry, ranked from lowest to highest wage. Both the number of people in that job and median annual pay are May 2020 figures from the Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics program.

Method and data source

Although teachers have the incredibly important job of educating the next generation of Americans, their earnings vary widely across the country. 

Nationwide, the average public school teacher salary for the 2019-2020 school year was $63,645, according to data from the Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics. While the nominal teacher salary has increased over the last couple decades, when adjusted for inflation, average salary is about 0.2% higher than the $63,523 average in the 1999-2000 school year using 2019-2020 dollars.

While many teachers earn a solid middle-class wage, the job comes with unique challenges. Many teachers across the US end up spending a not-insignificant amount of their take-home pay on school supplies for their students and classrooms.

The above slides show how much public school teachers made during the 2019-2020 school year (the most recent year for which data is available in each state) according to the NCES, as well as the total amount spent per public-school student during the 2018 fiscal year in each state, according to the Census Bureau.
