when told no, claimed she thought it was important to include them as they
affect health care facilities and other island resources.MauiCounty has the highest cost of
living and severe workforce shortages, more than any other island.This is where MCC hopes to help.In a recent discussion of long term care,
statistics show a definite nursing shortage on island.MCC has 80 graduates each year and another 80
qualified students that are not accepted into the program due to space
restrictions.The graduating students
are highly sought after but often offered higher salaries on Oahu
or the mainland.Pay scales are so low
and housing prices are so high that is hard to keep people here.The mayor indicated that the county has
identified 16 affordable housing projects to address the needs.Clyde reported the
MCC TV facility will be available during the election campaign forums.
