Petition Social dumping Of seafarers

We urge this government to look into the exploitation taking place on our seas. Shipping companies are now exploiting seafarers and paying wages around £2.30 per hour even when a vessel sails between two British Ports.
We call on the government to review the legislation that allows shipping companies to exploit seafarers on rates of pay less than that of the national minimum wage in Great Britain.
