Here’s a quick but true story about the promotion process I experianced
while working for the TSA. It should make everyone think twice about
who is making the decisions that keep them safe in the air.
So who are the candidates and who gets the promotion?
A woman with a BA in psychology, and whom has been acting lead multiple
How about the 82nd Airborne vet, who actually applied with a 10 point
vet preference for disability? He also acted as a lead damn near every
weekend while we were short leads. Should he get the promotion? Nope.
How about the guy that gave up his first year of marriage to guard the
captured terrorists that created the TSA. The guy who had been face to
face and hands on with the jerk that missed the plane four years ago.
Does he get promoted? Nope.
Here we go, someone with only a GED and some time as a screener prior
to 9-11. Yup, that's the promotion.
Does this instance fit in with the mission of national security?
Is this ethical?
Is this even legal concerning veteran's preference?
Do you feel safe at the airport?
