Current U.S. Dept of Labor statistics show the official unemployment rate is 8.2%, yet in the hospitality industry the unemployment rate is 9.7%Clearly then, the hospitality industry is suffering from higher unemployment rate than the U.S. unemployment rate average.
That doesn't seem possible though does it? I mean the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) funded at least one lobbyist (TobaccoScamUSCSF) to 'educate' hospitality owners that smoking bans are a boon for business.
Btw, Pierre's Restaurant in Morristown, NJ, which is featured in the pdf above promoting smoking bans as 'good for business' went out of business in 2009 according to comments on this website.
Who funded TobaccoScamUSCSF.edu? .....the Nicoderm, Nicorette, Nicotrol benefactor RWJF of course.......gee we wonder why they would do such a thing?
And should allow the tens perhaps hundreds of thousands of hospitality owners, employees, suppliers etc. to hold RWJF and its surrogates responsible for promoting lies that led to financial ruin.
