Guam - It pays to work for the Guam International Airport Authority. While the Government of Guam doesn't have money to pay the 10 percent owed to law enforcement and public safety personnel since the money wasn't appropriated in the current fiscal year budget, Airport Police officers will see a boost in their paychecks.

Airport marketing administrator Rolenda Faasuamalie confirms that GIAA police will see the increase this pay period, noting that the money is coming from the airport's current fiscal year budget.

The Judiciary of Guam, meanwhile, has also cut the personnel actions for marshals and probation officers to receive their increases. While the courts acknowledge that they owe their employees the 10 percent, there's no money to pay for the raises at this time.
