Concern about Hawaii’s fly homeless home program


People are attracted to Hawaii for its pleasant weather and aloha spirit, Alexander said. But they arrive and face the reality that living in paradise is very expensive.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

Yes, living in Hawaii comes as a rude shock to many people, including those of us who call Hawaii home.  Why didn’t these displaced people do a little research before taking a one-way ticket here?  Perhaps, many of our temporary and now to be exiled newcomers figured that our sense of aloha and good social services would "tide them over" until a good job came along. Dream on….’tain’t gonna happen.  If the airline ticket program fails to produce results, look forward to more homeless shelters being built on your tax dollar.  Let your state legislators know how you feel.  Aloha, Russ.
