HAWAIʻI RANKS 18TH IN STATES NEEDING EMPLOYEES, according to a WalletHub study released on Wednesday. According to WalletHub, "Lots of businesses are struggling to hire enough workers, which has sometimes led to delays in services and reduced business hours. In fact, the labor force participation rate has experienced the slowest recovery of any recession since World War II. Some businesses aren’t even able to keep the employees they already have – as Americans are quitting their jobs at record rates in what's been dubbed the Great Resignation."
In order to see where employers are struggling the most in hiring, WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia based on the rate of job openings for both the latest month and the last 12 months.
States struggling the most to find and keep employees include Alaska, ranking number one, followed by Kentucky, Georgia, Montana, Iowa and West Virginia. The places with the fewest problems in keeping jobs filled are New York, D.C., Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Washington.

Congressman Kaial "On behalf of the people of Hawaiʻi, I want to offer a big congratulations to Luluka on being this year's winner of the Congressional Art Competition. In Hawaiian culture, honoring those who have come before us is an important practice, and Luluka's beautiful piece captures that relationship. I am especially proud that her artwork will be displayed in our nation's Capitol Building to represent the Aloha State. Mahalo to all of the extremely talented artists
