    The Rev. Valerie Ross of the Hanapepe United Church of Christ holds a sign in support of the proposed $18 an hour state minimum wage. “I see it as a social-justice and a spiritual issue,” said Ross, who joined others along Kaumuali‘i Highway near Kukui Grove Center in Lihu‘e.

LIHU‘E — Two years is now the difference between $18 minimum wage bills moving through the Hawai‘i House and Senate.
