Hampton Roads television station, WTKR, picked up on some of the information in our quarterly report for the Virginia Chamber of Commerce. Hampton Roads lost almost 10,000 jobs in the 12 months ending September 2017. That stands out because over the same period Virginia as a whole added 34,000 jobs. The Hampton Roads industries losing jobs were primarily tourism-related -- retail and lodging. If it was just a bad year for tourism because of weather concerns, then next year might be different. But if this is related to the increasing number of Virginia school districts opening before Labor Day, then the tourism jobs may not bounce back anytime soon. Regardless, it draws attention to the importance of having a diverse economy.
