The results of the AHLA’s 2016 Wage Survey are in! A total of 281 properties responded, and we’ve organized the data to help you budget to stay competitive.

  • Overall, average wages for most in the accommodation and hospitality industry are well above the new $12.20/hour minimum wage. They are not expected to increase significantly, likely due to current economic conditions.
  • There were some increases in Food & Beverage after October 1, when the liquor server rate was eliminated and the minimum wage increased approximately 6%.
  • Most respondents indicated they would not be hiring more staff in 2017.
