Epic Diving pulling more BS running ads saying they are looking for Americans when in fact they have Mexican officers and seamen on their EPIC DIVER and have no desire or intention to change the status quo. Just more of the same crap that disenfranchises US nationals in favor of foreigners on our own OCS!

If they know there are American seamen available for the jobs, they will not be able to issue the waiver letters to allow these companies like Epic to keep getting away with this!
If you are an out of work mariner looking for a position in the GoM but are not finding a job, you really should fight this because you are the loser here.
