Attend Panel Discussion on A Living Wage
A minimum wage worker in Hawai‘i currently makes $10.10 per hour. With inflation and Hawai‘i's high cost of living, this is not enough to live in Hawai‘i. "Raising the minimum wage to a livable level—a Living Wage—would give Hawaiʻi's consumer economy a massive boost while giving Hawaiʻi's working families the financial opportunity to thrive here in our island home."
