GFT Members, families and friends wore â€œGuam Needs a Raiseâ€ stickers at the annual GovGuam Labor Day Picnic at Ypao Beach yesterday sending the message that Guamâ€™s workers are overdue for a raise. Guam has had a 6% inflation rate each year for the past six years yet wages are still the same. We need to bring purchasing power back to the people so they can spend on local businesses circulating money into our economy. The distribution of wealth is only present amongst a small percentage of the population which isnâ€™t a good indicator of a good economy. The only way we can raise Guamâ€™s standard of living is if you participate in your democracy. Call your senators today and urge them to pass legislation that will help grow Guamâ€™s economy.
