There is a retirement crisis in the country, including here in Hawaii, where half the working population can’t afford to set aside money from their paychecks to save for retirement.
Sarah Gill, a senior legislative representative with AARP’s government affairs department in Washington, D.C., is in Honolulu to advocate for passage of Senate Bill 1374 which would establish a Hawaii retirement savings program for private sector employees.
She joins Pod Squad host Chad Blair to discuss the legislation and the plight many Hawaii residents find themselves in as they near retirement age. The bill is headed for a full floor vote this week.
