Reaganize the TSA

Hey Trump — you wanna make a quick political buck?

Fire the TSA rats who refuse to show up.  None of them will suffer real harm through the shutdown, and the snowflakes staging a “sick” walk-out are causing real harm similar to the ATC walkout decades ago.

TSA operates under DHS.  Those are federal employees.  Let them have it in the neck.  Meanwhile, this should improve promotion and posting opportunities for the guys who stayed at their jobs.

C’mon, say it — You’re Fired!

  1. Does their union contract specify that they will get paid whether or not they bother to show up?  Are the TSA employees so dull that they live paycheck to paycheck?  What is the hourly wage of a TSA agent anyway, 20 bucks?  With unemployment so low they could easily go get another job.  It’s not like they have actual skills like ATC.

  2. Well, I actually know a little about TSA.  Almost everyone starts out part-time, and ‘earn’ their way to the privilege of being full time.  The pay initially, is very poor.  the hours are no fun.  There is serious tribal mentality enforced, think big old fashion Union control.  You want to keep your job? Do not buck the Union.  They say you will be sick tomorrow, you will be.

    I actually thought we would have federal employee slow-downs and call outs (‘encouraged’ by the Union leadership thugs) much sooner than this.  I thought the post office would be the first group to ‘Act Up!”  Before you know it,  the big Unions —  teachers, service employees —  will all have their employees in Act Up mode in solidarity with the Fed. employees.

    By the way, being fired for multiple single day/two day sick time events in excess of typical sick time accruals is not unusual.  So there is precedence for those calling out sick to be sacked.   And I think it is fair to say, the typical TSO will not find it easy to find other employment given the limited skill set they generally have.

    ALL that said, it always would have been the smarter, more efficient, more effective, less expensive solution to have trained dogs do the job of checking/sniffing out potential trouble.

  3. I think Jeff Besos will be remembered 50 years hence. He changed the way we bought books and other things. It is unbelievable that from a phone one can shop. He has cut out the need for stores and delivers straight from a warehouse.
