AHRD, GDOL Assists Furloughed GUNG Personnel

408

Guam – Shortly after Soldiers, Airmen and civilian employees of the Guam National Guard were furloughed due to the budget impasse in Congress, the Guard leadership coordinated with the Agency for Human Resource Development and Guam Department of Labor to bring in their Rapid Response team to conduct a presentation last Friday. 

The agencies’ Rapid Response for Laid-off Workers program is designed to provide information on accessing a comprehensive range of direct services, benefits, training opportunities, and income support. 

Close to 140 Guard members and civilian employees were affected by the furlough action due to a lack of a Continuing Resolution in Congress.
