Filipinos are very efficient or hardworking individuals. They don't just sit down and waste their time for nothing. If the locals/chamorros don't want the job i think it is just right to hire H2 workers. Let those local citizens to improve themselves to find a better job that they like instead of whining. They can do better than what they are now not by just depending on the government or social welfare.

Nothing against Filipinos but there are many locals and LT residents here - Chamorros, Filipinos, Mestizos, Statesiders, etc, even Micronesians - that could use the work. WHAT IS PURPOSE OF SETTING UP A GCC "TRADES ACADEMY" + LOCAL DOL APPRENTICESHIPS - read, USING SCARCE GOVGUAM + PRIVATE-INDUS $$$- IFF THE JOBS ARE GOING TO GO TO ANYBODY ELSE NOT A LOCAL TA GRADUATE NOR EVEN A LOCAL LEGAL RESIDENT??? I can't morally nor economically agree wid the logic.
i agree, it really does'nt matter what nationalities are hired. home is first. the only reason why they don't want to hire locals, they don't want to pay. they want cheap labor. the rest of the money they will, POCKET. we don't know what deals they made SECRETLY, how much of a kick back they'll get. thats personal politics.

Why couldn't these jobs be offered to people at Kings Bay Georgia. The job market here is nonexistent. I am sure if the local people knew there were jobs they would go from here.
