Dear Gov. Ige,

I have worked very hard in my life to get a high level of education and expertise. I love passing this onto the wonderful students of Hawaii. I teach Nursing at Kauai Community College. The cost of living is so high here that we live paycheck to paycheck. Almost 50% of my wages go to my benefits pkg. but without that I could not make it. We have been having a hard time hiring new faculty. We work many long hours to fill in for being short-handed. Please help us!
