Akina and Perry talk ‘unemployment tax blues’

Keli’i Akina of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii rode once again with “Perry & The Posse” this past Monday, invited by host Michael W. Perry to share his views about the looming massive increase in the state’s unemployment insurance tax.

“It’s not bad enough that Hawaii’s business have been hit hard by the lockdown,” Akina said, “but as of next year, the unemployment taxes are going to triple … It’s terrible.”

Perry is one of the most recognized and respected names in Hawaii broadcast history. His show airs six days a week on KSSK-AM59 and KSSK-FM92.3. It is currently the No. 1 morning radio show in Hawaii, capturing a 25% share of the state’s listening audience.
