Family of 4 need $104,000

Family of 4 need $104,000! Hawaii minimum wage is $10/hour. Family of 4 including their 2 teenage children all working full won’t earned enough to survive in Hawaii, how sad?

How much does a family of four need to pay for basic essentials? The minimum income needed has risen to $104,000 per year, according to a report released yesterday.

The situation may be even worse today — that report was based on 2021 data. But even so, the cost of living jumped 26% from 2019 to 2021, and marks an 18% jump in the basic survival budget from families.
