It is also a great issue in the Hospitality Industry, the intensity were varies according to the size of the establishment, some are low and many is as high as the height of their buildings. The fact also stated that workers in the hospitality industry in the early stage of their career expect to move from one job to another, creating a very low desirability of steady workplaces and the job security. Moreover, the labour turnover is very much increases when employees are far more specialised, more difficult to find and requires more training.
