Guam - During this weeks' Chamber of Commerce general membership meeting discussion will focus on the truth behind the minimum wage. As we reported Vice Speaker BJ Cruz has indicated that he plans on adding Bill 316 to the next legislative session agenda. The measure would raise the minimum wage by $0.95 over the next three years to $10.10. The Chamber of Commerce has opposed to legislation while the Guam Womens' Chamber of Commerce is in support of the bill. We should add however, after the public hearing board member of the Women's Chamber Lorraine Okada said the bill was horrible after speaking with her clients. Okada provided that comment to KUAM as owner of Okada Managing Consulting Services that handles wages and compensation issues. The Chamber meeting is scheduled for Wednesday at 11:15 am. It will feature a panel of members who will present on the impact of raising the minimum wage. The meeting will be held at the Westin.
