The Deadliest Job in America is, claimed to be crab fishing on the Bering Sea. A good season can make one man a year’s salary in just a few days! With forty-foot waves, 700 pound crab pots, freezing temperatures and your mortality staring you in the face…this job ranks as one of the deadliest.
He even received a rare "'atta boy" from Keith over the hailer for his excellence on deck, and earned himself a half-percent raise in just 6 days.
Roger worked as a salmon fisher before joining Keith's crew, but his most valuable asset isn't his experience; it's his attitude. He earned a coveted Wizard jacket at the end of the season, a sign that Keith sees Roger as a long-term guy for his company.
Able to work the rail, count crab, and help in the engine room, Roger has earned the full respect of the crew over the past two years. He even got his younger brother Robby Schlosstein a job on the vessel.
Although Rogers is off to a stellar start, it remains to be seen if he will continue to take on more responsibility - especially with an aging crew.
