    Abstract

    The purpose of this paper is to explore the use of socio‐spatial mobility frameworks as a way to study and monitor labour instability in hospitality in order to better understand how labour instability manifests itself in tourist destinations with particular workforce characteristics. Evidence from Darwin's hospitality industry is presented to showcase the value of socio‐spatial mobility research in the study of labour instability and argue that Darwin attracts a workforce that is unlikely to stay. Future research in hospitality could focus on modelling labour instability through the escalator region theory to identify the degrees of labour instability in certain destinations based on the workforce they attract, thereby encouraging businesses to consider strategies that support their operation in unstable labour environments.
