Hawaii, for example, was cross-referenced with the Bureau of Labor Statistics, where further statistical reports revealed that the island is included among the list of regions where hotel industries have great concentrations of hotel or lodging managers. Hence, it could be surmised that these hotel managers may be seeing a lot of action and will soon become overworked. It is possible for turnover rates to increase, due to the long hours of work involved. In addition, management could be placing greater pressure on the hotel's core group in order to ensure that growth and increasing rates of occupancy are maintained if not elevated even further.
New York City, on the other hand, matched the list for being one of the top-paying cities in the US for lodging managers. This is likewise a positive indicator.
