49% of displaced tourism workers still unemployed – CARICOM Business
87% of Cayman’s 3,107 displaced tourism workers receiving the Displaced Tourism Stipend administered by government continue to be either completely unemployed or working less than a 30-hour work week.
49% of Cayman’s displaced tourism workers, or 1,537 people, are currently unemployed due to redundancy, termination or lack of work associated with the sudden stop of tourism in 2020, while another 1,158 people are working less than a 30-hour work week. 55% of those who have been displaced are women.
The Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA) has. however, identified between 1,500 and 2,000 jobs that are available within the tourism sector.
