    TSA Officers Not Getting Paid

    Ellen Jackson, a Transportation Security Administration officer based in Las Vegas, is driving full time for a ride-share company to get by. The 59-year-old is planning to retire in April.

    “I don’t want to borrow any money,” said Jackson, an Air Force veteran who said she makes about $38,000 a year as a TSA officer. “I don’t want to get into a deeper hole.”

    Fellow Las Vegas-based TSA agent Julia Peters applied for food stamps on Thursday and was approved. She said five of the eight other applicants at the benefits office were also TSA workers.

    If TSA workers don't get paid and stop working, who will make sure we don't bring bottles of water into the airport?
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Even worse, who is going to make sure someone getting into the airport isn't a terrorist?

    If border security is not an issue why do we have the TSA? Why are we involved in wars all over the globe? If not to protect the USA?

    I hope it goes on long enough that most/all of them quit and they have a hard time starting back up again.

    The Trump Administration claimed that they had stopped 4,000 people on their "terror watch list" trying to enter the US. Only six were caught trying to sneak across the border. You are more likely to be killed by lightning than by a terrorist. But if you are worried about terrorists and want to stop them, the border wall is the least successful way to stop them (since they aren't using that route).

    That number largely stems from airport arrivals, and those are largely false alarms because someone merely shares a name with an actual suspect on the list, an Obama-era national security official told NBC News.

    Still, Sanders maintained that terrorists were coming "by air," "by land," and "by sea." Public Justice Department data shows no one has been "arrested at the southwest border on terrorism charges in recent years,"

    So either Trump gets his wall, or...
    ...Non essential government employees start to find much better jobs elsewhere.
    And then you can just axe the non essential jobs.
    The DNC loses another captive base.
    This job market is hot hot hot.

    Trump is executing the greatest "You're fired!" ever heard in history.
    He is going to cast a ninth level epic "you're fired".
    The private sector is so much better now.
    He is paving the way to GOP victory for decades.

    He has them tied up.
    The longer they stall on the wall, the longer they lose their own base.
    Even Cher is cracking, (since I am sure her credit is atrocious).

    And even better, fighting them on the wall, is actually what he wants. He feels it is better to just slow-fire 800,000 non essential employees.
    Balsanaro did it in his first eight days. The longer this goes on, the more powerful he gets.
    If he gets the wall. It's a big win, but this poisoning of their base is a most assuredly fatal track.

    And just wait until he declares the US bankrupt. XD The world is going to flip out!
    But it is a great move. The best move, believe me.

    The dangers of living paycheck to paycheck...

    Seriously, if you're 59 years old and able-bodied, there are very few excuses for not having enough savings to cover a month or six without pay.

    The Coast guard is unfunded. A neighbor who retired from the Coast Guard and has had a run of health issues is hoping he doesn't miss many checks over the shutdown.

    Not only that but he is a vet and probably qualified to use VA and skip health ins all together since he is retiring at 60 and not eligible for medicare until 65 , could even be drawing a military pension too. The media is worthless . Also , I could care less about this guy or the rest of the gropers . I will reserve my pity for the more deserving , not dishonorable peoples .

    No one teaches their kids how to budget anymore. I remember in 2nd grade we did an activity to teach us the difference in needs versus wants. Guess that's been cut out of the curriculum.

    And why the hell is she applying for food stamps? Most places I know send your application to the top of the stack if you have military service in your past. I'm assuming she didn't even try to find another job.

    Transportation Security Administration workers who worked through the partial government shutdown during the holidays will receive one day’s worth of pay, in addition to a $500 bonus.
    TSA Administrator David Pekoske made the announcement on Twitter Friday night, saying employees who worked on Dec. 22, the last day in the pay period, would receive compensation by Tuesday. Employees were not initially paid because the government shutdown began one day earlier.
    In a statement, Pekoske praised TSA employees who came to work despite the shutdown. “To every TSA employee– despite personal hardships and professional challenges, we’ve rallied and never once compromised the security of our nation’s transportation systems,” he wrote.
