Money is a fundamental concern in life and with any job. And unless
you happen to be a trust fund baby with a silver spoon in your mouth
(and if that was the case, you wouldn't be visiting this website), the
salary of a job is important. Yes, you can enjoy your job. But chances
are that most of us don't enjoy our jobs so much that we'd be happy to
work for free...for the mere satisfaction and pleasure of coming to
work every day. No sir, we like to get paid. And because working on
tugboats and other maritime industry jobs requires high levels of skill,
knowledge and can expose us to risks, we'd like to get paid well for it.

We've provided some information here that comes from the U.S.
Department of Labor statistics for jobs across the country.
Remember that this is nationwide statistical information of wages
and salaries. The wages and salaries that you may see with
transportation companies or employment recruitment companies can
vary. Factors that will affect wages and salaries for a given position
include geography, scarcity or density of labor pool and if those
positions are sought by other competing industries. Keep in mind that
these are general titles. You have to understand the Department of
Labor doesn't maintain information for industry-specific jobs, such as
QMED, tankerman, barge mate, tugboat dispatcher.

Did you know...
That as opportunities may seem fewer and farther between in the "close-to-home" sector of harbor work, the oil
and energy sector provides a draw for those willing to move offshore. You can see for yourself by visiting  
Edison Chouest or Tidewater. which post offshore jobs   drilling industry jobs   overseas jobs


Rigzone, a site featured in our Grab Bag has a large selection of postings for those who are really brave and
regard "offshore" as not only the Gulf but places like Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other locations in the Middle
