The impact of tourism on a host country Economic Socio-cultural Physical
The impact of tourism on a host country has positive and negatives. I've worked in a ski resort in Switzerland which is solely reliant on tourists. Accommodation for the workers is overly expensive and less available due to proprietors making property holiday apartments to make more money, which then affects workers negatively. This has turned into a current issue in Switzerland as the SVP political party want to minimise European workers to be able to work in Europe due to them agreeing to lesser wages than Standard swiss wages. They believe this will then lessen housing rent. 56% of voters are in favour of the suggestion.
A trade union ( British English - trades union and amalgamation are also used), labour union ( Canadian English) or labor union ( American English) is an organization of workers who have united together to achieve common goals such as protecting the integrity of its trade, achieving higher pay, increasing the number of employees an employer hires, and better working conditions.
Trade union began in Europe. It is a continuous association of wage earners for the purpose of maintaining or improving the conditions of their employment. I've had to personally deal with the trade union in Switzerland because of being underpaid this coincides with knowing your rights and sticking up for them in fair trade. Checking regularly that your super has been paid by your employer seems to be a common slip up. Also in Australia.
Different states have different rules and regulations. In Queensland cracking. Down on drinking in indigenous communities to minimise crime. according to the Queensland legislation act 2003 If you were an inbound tour operator you must be registered and must not sell more than 20% of travel packages to non Australian companies within a 12 month period.

Criminal act 1995 committing any child sex offences overseas will I cure heavy penalties in Australia aswell. A disgusting shocking topic I can't believe this still happens in the world. And penalties should be hard on such a horrible inhumane crime!

Current Trends in the tourism industry, medical tourism. Overseas plastic surgery are on the rise, especially for Australians going to Thailand for dental and cosmetic. This was also featured on sunrise this morning that NIB will be getting on board with this booming trend. As a travel agent this would mean more travellers to asia and less expensive countries for these procedures.
a current trend but could also be an issue in the tourism industry is technology. Consumers research destinations and hotels etc on the internet as its so readily available and helps them make a decision. they also prefer to do the online bookings themselves which can therefore create slow decrease in travel agents worth if the generation of today are more computer literate and can do it themselves online.
As the mystery of what happened to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight deepens, tourism officials and agents say they don't expect a significant impact on visitors seeking this nation's beaches and cultural diversity.

If a career three miles up in the air sounds exciting, then being a flight attendant might be for you. Here's what you need to do to start.

ITS been 30 years of posturing, political infighting and inaction, but Sydney's second airport is about to take flight, with federal cabinet set to sign off on the project and more than $200 million worth of transport links next week.
Current issue in Australia is the second airport in Sydney to be built. this is a plus for the tourism industry and western sydney. Creating more jobs and also bringing more tourists. This can only do good things australia. especially that the airport is planned to be 24hrs. Only the local community will be against this which is understandable. More noise. As a travel agent this would create more flights so more flexiblity in choosing times of departure for clients. Would bring in more business.
Ecotourism is a form of tourism involving visiting fragile, pristine, and relatively undisturbed natural areas, intended as a low-impact and often small scale alternative to standard commercial (mass) tourism. Its purpose may be to educate the traveler, to provide funds for ecological conservation, to directly benefit the economic development and political empowerment of local communities, or to foster respect for different cultures and for human rights.

Current issue With troubles with qantas, cutting staff etc, has left alot of people uneasy with where the company is heading.

In Australia, national and local laws cover equal employment opportunity and anti-discrimination in the workplace. All employers are required by these laws to create a workplace free from discrimination and harassment.

Knowing where u stand as an employee is of upmost importance. From personal experience of not being paid holiday pay and being underpaid super in Australia and overseas, knowing your rights and sticking up for them is when u won't get ripped off.
