Summary: Dennis Jansen spoke on seasonal employment changes to KRHD news in an interview that aired on Thursday, May 12, 2022.

With the spring 2022 semester at Texas A&M University officially at its end, thousands of college students return home for the summer – which means drastic changes in local employment. Jansen said, “In our area, we have various hiring seasons and now we are at the end of the spring semester [when] employment falls. It’s regular as clockwork.”

Locally, some industries are impacted more than others. “We have between 1,000 – 1,500 workers out of about 17,000 that are classified as Leisure and Hospitality workers who are leaving us. They’ve already started – between April and June, this all happens,” Jansen explained.
