I decided to derogate a little bit from the compensation due to injury topic and to write an article on the return of money from the crewing companies, illigal mediators.
If to take the matter seriously, you can see that 90% of all Ukrainian seafarers paid money for their employment at least once in their lives. Many people pay all their life long for the employment, and many sometimes overpay for the opportunity to go to the sea right here and right now.
Moreover, for the opportunity to go to the sea for the first time as a cadet without due wages, the seafarers are prepared to pay several thousand dollars.
In no case I’m going to judge whether it is good or bad, however, if the seafarers are ready to pay for the employment, the present situation will go on and on.
It’s important for the service to have been paid, to be duly done, but unfortunately it’s not always so.
