It is more than likely that the 1,720 jobs from the recent employment report, were held by H-2 workers that send out a majority of their money off-island and back in their home countries.  Even if a few of them were residents of Guam, most of these jobs are poverty level jobs and taxpayers have to subsidize it.  When Guam’s families subsidize their workforce, it takes money away from having good schools for our children and safe streets for our families.  It’s time that Guam's construction industry starts supporting ways to raise wages across the board and stop using H-2 workers.
