Short Week as Guam Courts Cut Costs

gavelWorkers at the courts of Guam, in the Pacific, will have their working week cut to 32 hours from Friday, as the judiciary tries to cut costs.

The so-called furloughs were approved by the Judicial Council in April and were originally scheduled to begin in May.

But they were delayed until this month, when a funding shortfall called for their implementation.

It means all employees, including justices and judges, will now work only four days a week.

Contracts with some vendors have already been cut.

Court operating hours have been reduced by an hour a day.
