Why the TSA sucks: Reason 50,000

from USAToday:

Fewer domestic passengers left the nation’s airports through the first seven months of 2008, with fewer flights filling the friendly skies.

But while a bleak economic outlook may not perk up those numbers in the short term, the federal guardian of the gates says it has no intentions of trimming its workforce in this region of the country any time soon.

“There are no plans for reducing our staff,” said Sari Koshetz, a spokeswoman in the Miami office of the Transportation Security Administration, a division of the Department of Homeland Security.

How about THAT for being unresponsive to market conditions?

All 50,000 TSA employees will keep their jobs, while companies across the country have to lay off employees to stay in business.

This is why government programs and central planning always fail. They are insulated from the costs of their mistakes.
