Well, there is that.

Interestingly enough, the latest person we hired at the hotel was marketing in KC for her prior job.

PS: from a perspective of being "stuck" with a location, it's all about demand vs supply. I don't know about Charlotte, but I'm glad I'm not trying to convince people to vacation in Flint, MI... because somebody has that job

@littleman RE number who are "local" - This just showed up in my email RE California tourism

Quote
$6 out of $10 spent at local visitor destinations were attributable to residents of other states and countries.

Though strangely the spending on food is greater than the spending on air travel... I'm not sure I believe their numbers

[just realized this is a response to your comment in a different thread. Oh well]
