10,000 Jobs in Guam for Pinoys
Overseas Filipino workers (OFW) will be among the first priority for employment to JOBS IN GUAM in a press release I read from the Business Mirror today and the Sun Star online news. The said opening of job opportunities to work in Guam was also featured in the news in ABS-CBN and according to reports, there will be about 10,000 jobs soon to be generated out of the transfer of facilities of U.S. Marines from Okinawa, Japan.
Gov. Felix Camacho in a press statement at the Makati World Renaissance Hotel said that Filipinos will be given priority simply because of their experience of working overseas added to skills and being well versed to speaking the native language of Guam which is English. “It is not exclusive but the likelihood is that most will be from the Philippines,” Camacho said which takes the Philippines above all to fill up job employment in Guam soon.
Jobs Workforce Estimate:
15,000 construction workers – $15 billion over five years at $12 to $25 / hour depending on skills
health care – mostly for federal positions.
The lifting of suspension of previous quota restriction for Guam workers will start on November 28 while the recruitment of required skilled workers will probably start early next year according to the governor – Camacho. The said project buildup is estimated to cost at least $15 billion and part of the contract according to reports state that Japan will shoulder at least $6 billion of the total cost.
