Despite the US military forces being the largest employer in the Hawaiian islands;- poverty runs rampant. The spouses and older children of the military employees take many jobs at larger retailers and tourism related work. They force the local population out of employment as well.
Additionally, till recent years there were a large number of strip clubs and buy me drinkie bars for the islands 1million population. Even those with more net value resort to flipping inexpensive cars and compete with the Military economy in order to make ends meet.
Hawaii's normal resident citizen is in dire trouble because of the U.S. military presence. Only "rich women" who are usually married to the military can afford to work the $9.25/hr jobs and do App related car share business.
