State of Hawaii Archives: on Jobs

Linda Lingle: OpEd:Did nothing to save jobs when Aloha Airlines went under

And as the hour flew by, the attacks kept coming. "Who can forget Furlough Fridays on her watch or the Superferry fiasco? Or the fact that 2,000 jobs were lost when Aloha Airlines went under--direct jobs--while [Lingle] sat on her hands," said Hirono.

"It's just too risky to send my opponent to the Senate. [Hirono]'s not a strong leader, has no history of getting things done and doesn't work well with others," said Lingle.

Benjamin Cayetano: Increase the minimum wage

Last year, I asked you to increase the minimum wage. Our bill was bottled up in committee and died. I will again submit a new bill and ask you to support it. An increase will uplift the lives of more than 16,000 of Hawaiiís workers. If we want more people to get off welfare and back into the workforce letís make sure they get paid a decent wage, and letís do it now.
