Calvo talks about pay increases

Guam - It was last week when Governor Eddie Calvo announced plans to implement pay raises by Valentine's Day. And in his weekly address, Governor Calvo says while it's taken some time and a lot of sacrifice from Government of Guam employees, the time is here to re-institute the plan and wage increases.

"The Government of Guam's finances are healthy enough to implement and comfortably sustain the wage increases until the next time it happens," Calvo says. "The increase in your paycheck will help to make life a little easier. More importantly, the increase is a reflection of your growing value to Guam's future. You are appreciated."

Governor Calvo says the new Hay plan now benefits both entry level employees and those with seniority leaving room for growth even when you've reached the top.  Calvo adds he hopes the Guam Legislature will allow the plan to take effect.

As we reported, competitive wages for GovGuam employees will be in effect on February 14 if the Guam Legislature allows the Hay Study plan submitted on January 15 to go into effect without change.
