Securing a future where all Hawaii workers can afford their basic needs
A full time worker only makes $21,000 at the current minimum wage. The lowest rate in the nation, adjusted for our cost of living.
In addition to allowing all workers to afford their necessities, raising the minimum wage will provide the needed boost to consumer spending that our economy needs.
Since 2014, the state legislature has not passed a minimum wage bill on to the governor's desk. This has left Honolulu with the lowest real minimum wage in the nation.
