Guam - Legislation that would create the Apprenticeship Act of Guam goes up for a public hearing Tuesday morning. According to Senator Michael Limtiaco, Bill 425 would establish all the rules and regulations that would help skilled laborers to increase their earning power.

He said, "What was happening originally is that Guam would sign up the companies for the apprentice programs but they would go off island to Hawaii and San Francisco and get those apprentice programs actually signed off and renewed this law would establish and to facilitate that office directly and approve and sign off on companies who are participating in the apprentice program on Guam."

Senator Rory Respicio is the bill's co-sponsor and was done in collaboration with the Department of Labor who will take the lead on the program. Director Manny Cruz says he supports the bill as it is important for Guam's workforce especially as the island prepares for the military buildup. The public hearing begins at 9am tomorrow at the Guam Legislature.
