Good day. I am a Malaysian seaman and currently want to sail onboard Malaysia flag vessels. Is there a guideline or wage scale for Malaysian seaman serving onboard Malaysia flag vessel ? If there is, where can I obtain such info ? Please guide me in this as i have been searching for this information for quite sometime. Thank you.

Come on now, if your in the industry you should know better. Its Malaysia and i doubt u will be able to get info about our wage scales. Shipping in Malaysia is solely controlled by MISC (Malaysia International Shipping Corp.) so i guess they set the scale and please stop dreaming of even trying to change facts that they would pay more for foreigners then we Malaysians. Its gradually getting better though but its going to take grandfather years to actually see a difference.

You can roughly attempt to ask people working with MISC and get a wider picture of what i am trying to say.

Im not saying that they cut throats but we do need a better revision over our wages cause its a joke to other nationality's when there hear about our salary.

That's my point of view so i hope u get the wide picture.

My last company RCL Singapore pay is too low. But they don't care how we feel. They simple said if you are not satisfactory you can leave.They are many seaman avaiable in supply.

They are paying much less then other company. One step less then other company, that is Master pay US$ 3000 is same as C/O pay is other company.

- Other seaman think seaman from RCL are inferior.
- Other seaman think RCL is a cheap company run by cheap seaman.
- Other seaman think RCL is substandard company.
- Those other seaman from other company are one day going to be Surveyor/Shipper/Operation Manager/Broker/etc..
- Is that good for that company future in long run.
- Losing reputation is faster then getting one.

Those bussiness guys are short sighted.

Good pay can keep good standard.
