Frontline Defence News Ireland tweetz:
I am a sailor [with the Irish Naval Service]. I work four weeks at sea, two weeks ashore. When I am ashore, I live on my ship and perform 3 x 24hr duties also. I get €24 per day at sea this month. I will do 10 x 24hr duties at a minimum. I am suffering from burnout…
24 euro a day is an extra allowance while at sea. Rate of pay for a fully trained 1st class seaman starting out is 540.55 a week, with increase after 3 years service. Still shit for the work done, but not as bad as 24 euro a day.
