On July 1, 1901, approximately, 199 people all with Guam as their place of birth, were listed as working with the Navy Department.

  • Carpenters = 6
  • Coal Passer = 9
  • Cook = 1
  • Labor Foreman = 1
  • Laborer = 180
  • Mason = 1
  • Special Laborer = 1

Two laborers and one cook were paid on a monthly basis at $6/month each. The remaining 193 people were paid at a daily rate. The average daily pay rate was approximately 41 cents/day.

It seems apparent from these records that there seemed to be major pay wage disparities between Americans and Chamorro employees with the latter receiving significantly less. This was the beginning and would eventually (much later) become a public issue in front of Congress in 1947 among other key issues for Guam and her people.

However, some of these issues (but not all) were not addressed until the passage of the 1950 Organic Act. Some of these disparities were written about by former Guam Legislative Speaker Carlos Pangelinan Taitano in 1996.
