Guam - The Draft Environmental Impact Statement was also the topic of discussion at today's GEDA subcommittee meeting. Bank of Guam Economic and Market Statistics Officer Joseph Bradley gave a presentation, focusing on how the buildup will affect the local workforce.
The DEIS predicts that the number of jobs will rise significantly in 2013 and 2014, but that many of those jobs will disappear once the buildup is complete. "When the project is done, there's no work for them," Bradley surmised. "It may be, there may be very good ways to do it but I don't think we can lose sight of the fact that we're really talking about the community as a whole and not just the impacts on the operations of the government."
