With the unfortunate current destruction of COVID- 19, as you may know, many employees have been let go from their jobs. Hawaii being the most impacted state to have had their small businesses at a highest risk during this time. We found a study that shows there's a trend of employees that are losing their jobs. The trend “suggests that many of the employees who have lost wages during this period are some of the most vulnerable – what are sometimes referred to as “ALICE” families (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed), who have been shown in recent studies to be the most affected by Hawaii’s cost of living even under normal circumstances.”
