Guam - It was on Wednesday when Governor Eddie Calvo submitted his plans to the Guam Legislature on how to implement hay pay raises by Valentine's Day. The plans was put together by the Department of Administration's Human Resources Division utilizing information collected during the study conducted by the Hay Group in 2009 and 2010 and adjustments that were including by the governor.

Today Acting Speaker B.J. Cruz says Government of Guam employees have patiently waited long enough and thinks in the interest of moving the plan forward, that the legislature will probably just approve it as submitted by the governor. "I know there have been some questions about some people not getting increases who have been in government service for an extended period and I'm hoping those inequities that were initially in the Hay plan as originally submitted two years ago have been corrected and if they have, then we'll move forward with it," he said.

The plan is estimated to cost about $20 million in additional payroll costs annually.
