The Transportation Security Administration was created to make sure we are safe in an airport, on our flights, and make sure whoever comes to our cities, states, or country doesn’t do anything to harm us or bring crime.
However, the TSA has had bad reputation for many years. They have been accused of taking bribes, not doing their job effective and stealing from luggage. A new Government Accountability Office report cites that there has been an increase of misconduct by TSA from 2010-2012 by 26%. The report finds employees are skipping important security protocols, are late to work or not showing up to work, making inappropriate comments, and sleeping on the job.
These kind of behaviors reminds me of TSA employees at JFK or LGA airports in New York City. It surprises me that nobody is watching over their work ethics and disciplining them. I have personally experienced them chatting in groups, not even watching the passangers, making sexual/racial comments, being rude and they never seem to be happy even being there. Why did they apply for this job? It’s a serious responsibility they have.
I hope TSA gets their act straight and fix what needs to be done.
