From MauiTime:

In case you were wondering, some of Maui’s richest and most powerful landowners and developers had lunch together on the afternoon of Friday, Feb. 24. Peter Martin, Charlie Jencks, Everett Dowling–they were all there at the Maui Country Club in Spreckelsville, eating turkey and ham sandwiches with green salad and listening with rapt attention to one of my former editors denounce public employee salaries and pensions.

Flown out by the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, writer and columnist Steven Greenhut gave the few dozen people in the room a lunch they’ll remember.

“County public employees in the state of Hawaii make among the highest wages in the nation, even after adjusted for Hawaii’s high cost of living,” stated the notice announcing the talk. “Steven Greenhut is the author of Plunder! How public employee unions are raiding treasuries, controlling our lives and bankrupting the nation. He will open the books on police and fire departments across the country, and show that the problems of pension spiking, overtime, and Cadillac benefits are also happening in Hawaii.”
