If Hawai’i were to raise the minimum wage to $17 per hour by 2025, a spam musubi’s price might increase from $1.55 to $1.62 (7 cents); the price of bag of chips might go up from $2.88 to $3.02 (14 cents); and the price of a fast food combo meal might rise from $6.59 to $6.91 (32 cents).
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.
