The Vote Travel Movement

As a company that helps people to Teach English Abroad, LanguageCorps doesn’t spend a whole lot of time thinking about travel within our home base, the US.  But, when I received an email from Vote Travel, a movement sponsored by the US Travel Association, I found it thought provoking enough to warrant a semi political post.

Vote Travel is a first of it’s kind campaign, dedicated to promoting the interests of the travel industry within American politics.  According to their website, the American travel industry supports 14 million jobs that cannot be outsourced, and with our country facing its most serious economic difficulties since the great depression, what better time to promote this industry?

It’s an interesting idea.  We don’t often hear much about the travel industry in American politics.  But with a well funded, organized lobbying group backing the industry’s interests, perhaps that is about to change.  And while on the outset, LanguageCorps, the TEFL industry and this Vote Travel movement don’t seem to have much to do with one another, our company is interested in promoting all things travel related.  It is our belief that travel is one of the most important things one can do to evolve and progress as a human being, and any organization that promotes that belief, whether home or abroad, is a positive thing.

And perhaps the trickle down effect will be promoting alternative career options like Teaching English Abroad to our nations struggling workforce.

Regardless, it will be interesting to see how the movement progresses with during the upcoming election year.  For more information check out http://www.votetravel.org/, and if it strikes your fancy, sign up to support the Vote Travel movement.
