According to the following recent article:

- While Hawaii's natural beauty appeals to many, it hasn't necessarily helped its employment landscape: The state has earned the distinction of worst state for making a living in all three years of this study. The chief culprit is the highest cost of living of any state, and a relatively high state tax burden compounds the problem. Hawaiians do like their workplaces -- the state ranked first in the poll on workplace environment -- but economic factors still make this the toughest place for making a living.

Its a result of the failed policies of the 50 year corrupt Hawaii Democrat regime and the dummies who keep voting for them decade after decade after decade.

Don't blame me I didn't vote for any of those dummies.

It may be of interest to know that this year is the 3rd straight year that HI has been proclaimed the worst state to make a living by those who do that survey.

Doesn't a state have to be concerned about attracting young bloods that are just starting out?

Aren't young bloods depended on to come up with new viewpoints and innovative ideas that are needed to make life better?

When it's hard to make a living, doesn't that contribute to brain drain?

Yes. Hawaii is bad. Don't try moving here. Your prospects are much better in North Dakota.
Visit, but don't forget that if you move here, you'll be homeless inside a month.
