Discover Arizona -- Online Auction Staycations

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- According to the Arizona Hotel and Lodging Association, state tourism puts nearly 200,000 people to work each year, making the industry the largest employer in Arizona.

What many might not realize is that more than 30 percent of those employees are Hispanic.

Kristen Jarnagin explains why a boycott of our state could hurt those who are here legally the most.

The Discover Arizona Online Auction in conjunction with the 27th Annual National Tourism Week, May 8-16, provides cities, states and travel-related businesses the opportunity to collectively champion the power of travel. This year's theme-- "Travel Matters"-- goal is to enhance the country's economy, security and perception, and recognize the cultural and social benefits created by travel and tourism.
