    Is this an actual fishing job?. What happens if you haul back at 2 and the pen is still loaded at 3 ? Are you supposed to actually walk off deck at 3 since you’re not getting overtime, and leave the fish to rot ?
    Do they expect to haul back more than 2 times a day with those working hours ? Do you not have the chance to make more than $156.06 per day if the fishing is good ? I really don’t know what to make of this. Is it a joke, or is this the fucked up reality of whats gonna happen when corporations totally control the fishing industry ?

    I guess theres a chance they might get a couple of experienced guys who have been on the beach a while and are desperate to go fishing. But the reality is that if they do get experienced guys they will be guys who have worn out there welcome throughout the fleet because they have issues and the rest will be green guys or immigrants who are desperate to do anything. Either way, I wouldn’t sleep well with any of those guys on watch.

      Yeah. If they do get someone stupid enough to do it, they sure won’t be the cream of the crop.
      It sets a lousy precedent.

    That is really funny…..I am betting it is shift work and they have other people to cover the rest of the day. The good news is that operations like that one provide a place to train new crewmembers which will most likely get better jobs the moment they k ow enough to move on. As for the crew with large amounts of personal problems we all have to sort through those. (I think a class action lawsuit against the pharmaceutical companies for screwing up our work forces future may be feasible at some point.)
