The Big Island and Maui economy has been severely impacted by the recession, and not alot of available jobs to go around for the locals. Many workers still commute via ferry from neighboring islands.. traveling 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours each way to get to work.

Likely employees leaving Ritz Kapalua will not be by choice, rather through involuntary termination or layoffs. Those who are not working at Ritz Kapalua will probably be out of a job for the time being, as a result I think most employees are hoping to stay.
