Decent Work and Tourism Wages: An International Comparison

Andreas Walmsley

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The relationship between business and society provokes ongoing debate. Employment represents a critical interface between society and business and as such is fundamental to this relationship. In tourism, employment is often the meeting point of external business interests and community interests. However, as Pfeffer (2010) has argued, environmental impacts aside, where emphasis has been placed on social impacts of business the issue of indigenous cultures has been placed to the fore. The impacts of business on the employee have largely been ignored.
