Working for the TSA has to be an absolutely awful job to begin with, not getting paid? GTFO

It is prime golfing season at his Florida properties, I don't think he can go another week without leaving for the links.

Yeah, the article said they were calling in sick basically to go work other gigs for money. Gotta imagine 90%+ of those workers are paycheck-to-paycheck.

Yea I'm surprised he's not in Florida. The weather this time of year is perfect. 70's and 80's, low humidity.

Making less than $20 an hour You have to be living paycheck to paycheck and one or two paychecks missed before your homeless.

Curious when the airports just don't have the staff and lines grow

Michael Bilello was appointed Assistant Administrator for Strategic Communications and Public Affairs in October of 2017.

There's nothing really stopping him from going there.

Sure, the optics are horrendous, but when has ever he given a **** about that?

Low unemployment=many TSA workers will be looking for and finding new, better jobs.

BTW, I think Congress starts to freak out as soon as there start to be missed flights. I can't see it going more than 4 weeks.

Trump's negotiating style, trying to lock down the steering wheel in a game of chicken, only works under certain conditions. One condition where it doesn't work is if 13 GOP senators decide to turn the wheel themselves (though I believe they need McConnell to bring a vote to the floor; there may be some relevant exceptions).

I don't fly much so I don't have much skin in the game, but they should probably eliminate the TSA. Wake me up when September ends.

Obviously he knows how bad it will look to see video of him driving his cart over the greens and taking chip shots as hundreds of thousands of government workers are worrying about how to pay their mortgage. If he didn't care about the optics he sure as hell wouldn't be holed up in DC.

This. The TSA security at airports is nothing more than billion dollar theatre.

I think it's the opposite. He's staying in DC to show his supporters he's the one willing to negotiate. "I'm trying to get this wall done and the Dems won't even offer!"

Do you know if yours is a region-wide stay (like something requested by your region's UST, and generally granted by the courts), or a district-specific general order? Or something else?
