Airports Are Dealing With Massive Lines During The Government Shutdown As TSA Employees Are Working Without Pay
Airports are dealing with massive lines due to the government shutdown.
The shutdown began on Saturday, December 22.
TSA employees are part of the government, so they're affected and working without pay.
But TSA staffers are calling out of work.
At Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, the call-out rate has increased by as much as 300%.
The TSA says they are "closely monitoring the situation" and that "security effectiveness will not be compromised."
