[QUOTE=Saltgrain;145468]He is just trying to figure out if they are discriminating against him for his ethnicity I am sure. If one person says they made/make more than the 145… he will start a fuss.
His mistake is he went to the Dept. of Labor site and is using some statistic there as if it were a “minimum wage”.
Likely what he saw was an average pay rate for the position for all industries and companies… and even length of employment.
That stands to reason that there are people making a lot more at that level… and others making LESS.
From his last posts… his nationality (not his ethnicity… difference) is what is holding him back from achieving higher license status. He has already been told that he will just have to bite his tongue… take what he can get for now and then upgrade when he is legally eligable. If 145/day isn’t acceptable… he can look at the alternatives… which for him is quite likely “nothing” since he has issues with work status/certification.
At that rate 28/14 (assume that’s his rotation)… he will pull in a little better than 35K/year. Not huge money… but better than zero. From what I see, there aren’t many places where he could do dramatically better… and of course there are other possible benefits such as health care, retirement…etc… that he doesn’t mention.
Message to Matadoro… there is no Government dictated salary rate for any job in this country… save for minimum wage laws… it is up to the company what they pay you (or if union… based on the union agreement with said company).[/QUOTE] well thank you for the information ,and also us labour dept says that it more ,I heard that the pay rate for OS is about 180-200 day and that’s why I was asking and I see you quite smart you went deeper into my question because yes I had to think it the way you explained it. THANK YOU!! bordelon is not hiring its Honrbeck is and I don’t know about bordelon as I heard that they have new Dp2 OSV thats the pay rate !!!
