Epic divers and marine has cut beginner saturation rates from 750 and day to 450 a day, and has also lowered its entry level wages for tenders from 16 and hour to 14 an hour, but surely havent cut there rates for clients. This is pretty sad these wages are only obtained by being offshore in which the company is making the same amount of money but they believe since it is so slow in the industry that they can lower the pay standards of the diving industry. These problems are also partly to blame on the younger generation and or inexperianced workers we bring into this industry that will do the same job for less everytime one of us settles for less we are cutting our own throughts.
this was not the first straw companies cut safety, incentive, and retierment programs across the board everyone was upset but when the phone rings everyone is eager to go to work at some point the risk will not be worth the reward and hopefully employees will stand together agaist these type of disrespectfull cuts no diving personnel in the GOM available and able to work the entire year should be making under $60,000.00 a year
