Some general questions about prevailing pay rates:
- I was looking at another thread and I noticed A.B. pay being quoted as a daily rate plus a travel amount as well ( “$300/day plus $55/day travel”, for example). What is the travel amount for? Is that what you get paid for traveling from home to wherever you join the boat, or is it some sort of additional amount added to your pay for every day you are on contract?
- What seems to be the average pay for cooks working on GoM boats, or any other boats where the cook does not work on deck? (I’m making an assumption that most OSV cooks don’t work on deck).
