TAKE ACTION FOR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE!Workers are STILL waiting for their unemployment benefits after a whole year, yet the unemployment offices remain closed. Join us as we rally in front of the Department of Labor & Industrial Relations office on Monday, July 12th at 12PM, demanding a safe reopening of the unemployment offices so that working class families can get the assistance they deserve and have a right to receive!
A coalition of concerned community organizations and unions have united to hold an action on Wednesday, February 24. It will begin at the DLIR Office (830 Punchbowl St.) at 10:15am to call for the Unemployment Office to safely open up for the many workers in Hawai’i who are struggling with receiving their unemployment insurance. We will then bring our demands to the Capitol where we will also rally for workers to have a safe return to their jobs and the right to recall. We also demand for an increase in the minimum wage to a living wage.
If you or organization would like to join the coalition, bring issues, or have questions, feel free to email us at hiworkerscenter[@]gmail.com.
We hope to see you at the action on Wednesday, Feb 24 with your masks on — save the date!
