Every 35 visitors to the United States creates one job: US Travel Association
The United States Travel Association is teaming up with several other United States travel, tourism and hospitality organizations to raise awareness about the importance and necessity of United States visa reform to improve the economy and create jobs.
According to the United States Travel Association, every 35 visitors to the United States creates one job for an American, and on average, visitors to the United States from overseas countries spend over $4,000 during a visit. In 2009, almost one million jobs in the United States were directly supported by foreign travel and tourism, along with 856,000 jobs in non-travel-specific industries.
