VICTORY: Hawaii Increases the Minimum Wage!

HI needs a raise

When the Hawaii Legislature took up an important bill to raise the minimum wage, Drew Astolfi of the organization Faith Action for Community Equity, along with allies and the Hawaii MoveOn Council, launched a campaign to raise wages for workers in the state. After months of campaigning, and after more than 1,000 signatures were collected and delivered to the state House, the Legislature voted to raise the minimum wage, and Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed the bill into law. Hawaii is the third state to raise its wage to $10.10 an hour this year, which will also apply to tipped workers.
