Is A Hospitality Career your ideal job ?
Working within the hospitality industry could be quite tempting, especially with the various pay scales, associated benefits and in a lot of cases, luxurious resorts that you work within. All this being said though, a hospitality career is still not a venture for the weak of heart. Working within the hospitality industry is not all about perks, benefits and big tips.
So, before you type up your resume and send it in or application to commence training, think very carefully if this is the profession or career that you want. A Hospitality Career is about commitment and determination to your customers that their needs are met, hard work, long hours and at times unappreciative bosses.
Humility, an important component required for a Hospitality Career.

Plunder: How Public Employee Unions are Raiding Treasuries, Controlling Our Lives and Bankrupting the Nation
Public employees have become the new American elite. In the past, Government workers earned less money but had slightly better job security and benefits than Americans working in the private sector. These days, government workers not only earn more than other Americans, but they have vastly superior benefits, including pension plans that often allow them to retire as early as age 50 with 100 percent or more of their final year’s salary. These pensions often to $100,000 a year and come with cost of living adjustments and free lifetime medical care. Getting a government job and sticking with it is like winning the lottery. This plundering of treasuries, made possible by aggressive union tactics and spineless politicians, results in higher taxes and massive debts that ultimately will be borne by our grandchildren. The current situation is “unsustainable.” The problem goes beyond finances. Government unions protect even the worst public employees from accountability. Schools don’t attempt to fire incompetent teachers-and union protections make it nearly impossible to even fire ones accused of abuse and other misdeeds. As government gets bigger and more powerful, government officials have more uncontrolled power over the rest of us-to enrich and protect themselves at the expense of the public good. The public’s servants have truly become the public’s masters.
