The need for a living wage is pressing. More than two decades as the CEO of AlohaCare has made me very familiar with the needs of the most vulnerable in Hawaii. Since retiring two years ago, my seat on the board of PHOCUSED has allowed me to clearly see, through our community partner organizations, the challenges posed by poverty among children, kupuna, those with special needs, and low-income workers.
Advocates for a living wage will be asking our elected officials to deliver on their promises and pass a living wage bill in the 2019 legislative session. But we can’t do it without support from you.
It’s time to Raise Up Hawaiʻi
Every worker deserves a Living Wage.
