Re: Salary vs Day Rate & Extra Work Days
if I've got the mathematical logic right..through a "loop hole" some moronic genius in management feels it is appropriate to pay what is essentially a "half days pay" for the privilege of working over on your "time off"..if that is true then management probably gave "genius" a bonus and promotion for that..that moron's daddy must have repeatedly dropped poor genius on his head when he was an infant..would consider keeping some very good records of the days worked over..also a US citizen might have recourse thru either/both US and/or the vessel's "flag state" regulations..the Jones act might have "some teeth" regarding this matter and many other "flag states" have very specific provisions for how their seaman are to be compensated..suspect that management is relying on nothing to be done about this in the present economic climate..GOOD LUCK!!
