The travel industry has never been known to be high paying but according to the numbers, travel agents are working harder than ever for less than ever. This presentation was done for ASTA's YPS Blue Sky Symposium.
It goes over the latest in travel agent salaries and ask if they really reflect reality. Does underreporting of income cause our industry's salaries to be artificially deflated? If so, is that turn people away from becoming travel agents?
It may surprise you how big of a role salary plays when it comes to choosing a career path.
