Unfortunately the Hawaiian language is used no where else in the world, so the students degree and $10 won't even buy them a latte at Starbucks.

Terii_Kelii here - That is untrue because of many reasons. 1) I myself live in Mexico and talk to my friends all over the US, California, Kansas, Hawaii, etc in Hawaiian on the phone and Facebook. Laughably, the very means that you use to say those sentences renders your claims untrue! 2) There are many jobs that someone who knows Hawaiian language can do, including but not limited to a teacher, a historical researcher, songwriter and singer, author, etc. 3) To take on both claims at once, when I was living in South Carolina, I worked for a MAINLAND internet firm to create an online Hawaiian language website. So I used Hawaiian COMPLETELY outside of Hawaii AND I made $1000 for it. Now, because of my work, there are people all across the US learning Hawaiian for FREE at their public libraries. SO the JOKE is on you! hahahahahhahahahahahahha
