IPI hires 595 foreign construction workers

IMPERIAL Pacific International has directly hired 595 foreign construction workers on H-2B visas to help complete its casino-hotel facility in Garapan.

These workers are in addition to Pacific Rim’s over 1,000 workers from Guam.

“Construction progress on the casino-hotel project is much better than it was during the last half of last year with substantially larger numbers of construction workers,” IPI said in statement.

The H2-B workers, who are from the Philippines, are provided free lodging and food and are housed in Tanapag and at the IPI barracks on Middle Road.

IPI said it is also in the process of negotiating an extension of the Aug. 31 deadline for the completion of the casino-hotel resort.
