The hospitality industry attracts a wide variety of workers from a number of different labor markets. Since the world is growing smaller with advanced technologies, finding required labor around the globe has become much easier than ever before. Therefore, considering only locals as a source of labor maybe an outdated recruitment strategy. Continued globalization of the free market economy will encourage the migration of international labor. This paper discusses international labor markets and the migration of labor forces in the hospitality industry worldwide. It proposes that current trends and patterns of worldwide population growth need to be accounted for in developing strategies for addressing labor shortages.
