    Este trabajo se centra en analizar de qué forma ha afectado la crisis económica al empleo turístico en Francia y España, dos de las principales potencias turísticas, y si esta variable ha presentado un comportamiento similar tanto antes como durante la crisis. Los principales resultados muestran la mayor influencia en la generación de empleo turístico de las llegadas de turistas extranjeros en España, frente al nivel de riqueza, en el caso francés; la divergencia en el empleo turístico regional durante la crisis en España mientras que en Francia se ha continuado con la convergencia regional de años anteriores; y, finalmente, las variaciones en los componentes del crecimiento del empleo en las principales regiones turísticas, Cataluña e Île-de-France, durante la crisis.
