UOG Master of Accountancy Cohort 1 seeks your assistance

You and your business are invited to participate in a research project being conducted by the Master of Accountancy (MAcc) Cohort I at the University of Guam.

The objective of the research is to gain an understanding of the financial impact of implementing a Guam unemployment tax. Results of the research will be analyzed to better understand the feasibility and financial impact of a permanent unemployment program in Guam to fund unemployment benefits for individuals who lose their jobs through no fault of their own and to maintain economic stability.

Participants are being asked to complete an online survey of 10 questions that will take approximately 5 minutes to complete. The survey will consist of business demographic questions (industry, company size, and revenue) and questions regarding unemployment tax.

Participation in this research project is entirely voluntary and anonymous. You are free to withdraw from this project at any time without penalty.

A Smaller Workforce is the New Normal

by: Curtis Dubay, Chief Economist, U.S. Chamber

There are too few workers relative to the size of our population, causing a chronic worker shortage that will impact businesses for the foreseeable future. I discussed the implications with Rick Wade, Senior Vice President of Strategic Alliances and Outreach at the U.S. Chamber, as part of the Equality of Opportunity Initiative.


Why it matters: An older, smaller workforce is our new reality. Every business, every industry, and every region will experience a worker shortage going forward.


Big picture: The generations that followed the Baby Boomers are notably smaller. As Baby Boomers retire, the labor force shrinks.

And: As people get older, they consume more and produce less, which is a key issue for businesses.

What can be done: The worker shortage will likely remain a problem for years to come. Policymakers can tackle this by:

Reforming legal immigration to bring in workers with a variety of skill levels.

Improving second chance hiring.


And: Employers can fill the labor gap by responsibly using artificial intelligence and other technologies. Watch full conversation here.
