      I'm a professor at the university of Hilo which is 20 minutes from Keaau. I love this place and I love the people. I wish I could have lived here in my younger years.

      I'm a software engineer and I don't know much about the labor market for construction workers, but I do know that Hilo which is 20 minutes away has the fifth lowest employment rate in the United States. Keaau is my favorite city in Hawaii and truly paradise. Every day here is magical.

      Definitely not for working families, the jobs here are scarce and very far from the area. Because of all the rain, all construction or outdoor labor jobs are not a dependable source of income. If you do want to live in this or any area south of Hilo my recommendation is to live in a multiple family household with many working individuals. This is the best way to live in this area. -Community is 3 stars-life long friends but lots of drama and drugs, sometimes the bad outweighs the good.-Crime rate is 2 stars- there is a lot of unreported crime and shady deals in unlight streets.
