10% raises not included in FY2011 budget

Guam - Despite the law mandating 40% pay increases, law enforcement and public safety personnel won't see a 10% increase this Friday in their paychecks.  Department of Administration Human Resources Administrator Cecilia Martinez says there's no money for the third scheduled raises.

She told KUAM News, "The 10% for Fiscal Year 2011 was not budgeted for, wasn't include in the budget, therefore there's no money to implement that increase come October 1.  There are so many other reasons why it will have to be put on hold at least."

Martinez admits that the government is still liable for the ten percent that was supposed to take effect on Friday, but DOA is hopeful lawmakers will repeal the law that gave the raises in the first place.  They're asking the Guam Legislature to repeal raises that were given to teachers, nurses and public safety as they contend increases will be included in the Hay Study implementation.
