Dear Chair Dela Cruz, Vice Chair Keith-Agaran, and members of the Committee: I urge you to pass HB 1627, HD1, SD1. Current law allows employers to pay workers with disabilities less than the minimum wage. This bill would end that practice. Alaska recently joined Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maryland in banning sub-minimum wages for workers with disabilities. Hawai‘i should join them. It is already almost impossible for workers in Hawai‘i to make ends meet while earning the regular minimum wage. We should have one wage floor for all workers in our state. Mahalo for the opportunity to submit testimony about this important bill. Please pass HB 1627, HD1, SD1.
