HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state's low unemployment rate has Hawaii employers scrambling to find qualified workers.
"There just aren't as many people that are looking for work when you come to 3 percent unemployment," said Beth Busch, executive director of Job Quest. "But we also have a lot of holiday hires here today. We think we're getting a lot of people who might want second jobs."
The state's unemployment rate in August was 3.4 percent, down from 3.5 percent in July. Nationally, the unemployment rate is 4.9 percent.
"You never know what else is out there and there's always areas you can advance in so this is a great place to find it," she said.
