24 x 7 workhours

Yes. Due to the deteriorating tourism industry in the CNMI, hotels have cut off hours of work. Saipan Grand Hotel reportedly reduced workforce and reduced employees work hours from 48 hours a week to 24 hours a week. Now the employees are saying the hotel is really open "24 x 7" i.e. 24 hours a week.

Hyatt Regency Saipan reportedly has closed down two wings due to low occupancy.

Saigon Restaurant moved to a more unpopular place and a small place.

This place used to be "Sai-Fun" now it has become "Sai-Pun." No "Fun" intended.

oh well...

This is really depressing, even for a homebody like me. It makes me wonder if campaign season will be downsized in terms of food and free beer.

Very likely, borego. GOP says alcohol won't be served at their fundraisers and meetings. They say it's to help them project a clean, wholesome image. But I suspect the economy is to blame.

I hope so, all government facilities are drug-free, so why shouldn't election campaigns be drug-free too. Too many locals (not just indigenous people) see it as a balutan fest.
