The only thing that concerns me about paying tourist prices is whether the employees get a cut of this. I dare say they don't.

But the original poster may like to look at the US in terms of what people in tourism and hospitality industry get paid in us they receive approx $ 7 an hour or less and make the most of their money on tips.

My Ukraine wife and i stayed in a hotel for a few nights and of course i was charged tourist prices as you must show your passport - the price was roughly 30 US a night for the both of us which is more than reasonable as i paid 30 pounds a night in a london for a hotel that was not nearly as good.
