Brace yourselves

Re: Learning to use our resources 

After they train all these people, where do they go to find jobs? 

Is the government going to assist in creating opportunities for them? 

Or will we be back to the same premise of: 

1) separating families and 

2) go overseas for employment

It’s a disturbing fact, there was already a concern the Chinese were hiring their own for employment for contracts already approved, yet the government sat back and did nothing to advance that concern.

Brace yourselves for another onslaught of unemployment coming from American Samoa when the cannery closes. From what I read, many of those people are from Samoa. 2016 is going to end in a bad note for many families. It’s just sad!
