So, I'm getting a little hungry, diving is pretty scarce these days, and my other gig is non-existant nowadays. Today, I get a call out of the blue from a dive company offering me a job doing some dredging. They are operating on scuba and want to pay me under the table (that means no worker's comp if something goes wrong). It's 30' - 60' overhead environment and they are running a TWO MAN DIVE CREW. I need a job, but damn should I risk me and my families well being? Are companies really operating this way and are divers desperate enough to do the work?
What would you do? I'm seriously out of cash.
