“Lived in Maui for seven years. It kept getting more expensive but our salaries never changed. It was hard to get ahead, even though my husband and I worked in the hospitality and food and beverage industries. The job market is very competitive. We miss island life but Maui has changed so much in the year since we have been gone. Too many people, too much traffic, too expensive.”
