The Austria hotel and restaurant industry is urgently needed. Currently 9,000 jobs in the sector are not met, said the Chamber of Chambers of the Federal Republic of Austria. Workers' shortages should include rest days. "Even though there are few days in the first ski booths – it was unthinkable a few years ago," said the spokeswoman. While there were plenty of ski instructors, staff were missing ski lifts or hotel welfare areas. The industry is growing. In July, 238,000 people worked in hotels and restaurants. Since 2009, the industry has created 40,000 more jobs.
