Guam - There is push out of the Guam Legislature to ensure that local graduates get priority over foreign workers for jobs dealing with the military buildup. Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz sent a letter to Governor Eddie Calvo pointing that the Guam Community College recently graduated 30 students from a program to train individuals in the fields of construction and electronics.

Cruz states, "Such reality is that this training does not necessarily translate into immediate and continued gainful employment." He adds, "Therefore, Governor Calvo, I challenge you to do everything within your power to ensure that the hard work undertaken by these men and women pays off.

Cruz says considering the employment of all graduates under the Earmark Congressional Program will show the administrations commitment that the buildup is beneficial to the people of Guam.
