Tuesday, January 14th, 2020 - Gov. David Ige announces a join initiative package aimed to bring down Hawaii's high cost of living. Gov. Ige has worked with state and business leaders to develop this package that proposes slight increases to the minimum wage, more funds for affordable housing and more affordable pre-school programs to all kids by 2030.
“This will require an entire community effort,” Ige said. “It’s an effort for all of us as a community to align our priorities and really make action happen.”
