The tourism and recreation cluster as a whole is the larg­est out of all of the identified targeted industry clusters and is expected to see the most job growth from 2012 to 2018. This is primarily because it includes industries that typically have large employment levels, such as hospitals, hotels, res­taurants, and independent artists. However, the cluster also has one of the lowest wages out of all of the others, and the core industries rank fairly low in terms of the presence of occupations with high wages.
