Please listen to these two 55 second audio messages on increasing Hawaii’s minimum wage, and then take action!
Pass HB1191 today and put Hawaii workers on a path to a living wage
Nearly 50% of Hawaii residents live either in, or on the edge of poverty
Please call TODAY (and prior to 12/23)
Senate President Ron Kouchi
House Speaker Scott Saiki
Then call or email your own district legislators and tell them (respectfully) to convene the conference committee for HB1191 in January, amend the measure as may be necessary and increase Hawaii’s minimum wage to at least $15 with further gradual increases annually to keep up with inflation and eventually reach a true living wage.
