FourFour2 US workers make more money than their counterparts in Hawaii, but their salaries aren’t that great, according to a new report.
The median hourly wage in Hawaii in 2016 was $19.20 an hours, according, the Labor Department’s Wage and Hour Division.
Hawaii has been struggling with the Great Recession, with the unemployment rate rising to 14.6% in December, up from 12.9% in May, according the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The state’s unemployment rate has been the highest in the country since March 2011, when it hit 18.3%.
The U.N. is expecting Hawaii to surpass California as the state with the highest unemployment rate.
The United States is the only country in the world where the average wage is higher than the median.
The highest-paying state is Alaska, which has a median wage of $17.71 an hour.
The lowest-paying states are New Hampshire, which averages $13.60 an hour, and California, which average $12.80.
Hawaii’s median wage in 2016 is $17,624.
says the wage gap between the highest-paid and lowest-paid workers is widest in the U,S., where the wage is $23.28 per hour, according a report published this week by the International Labor Organization.
A report by the World Bank found that the median income of a woman in the Philippines is $19,743, while the median for a man in the United States was $54,965.
The report also found that Filipino women are nearly twice as likely as men to work part-time and earn less than $12 an hour while men earn about $13 an hour and women earn about the same as men.
The Philippines is the world’s largest exporter of rice, but many countries in Southeast Asia depend on imports from China for their food and medicines.
Many people in the region depend on remittances, which come from family members and friends in other countries.
Some experts say the remittence issue may be more significant than the pay gap because of the huge size of the Asian countries, such as China and India, which import most of their food, clothing and electronics from those countries.
