IS THIS WHAT IT WILL TAKE TO END THE SHUT DOWN?

EDITOR'S UPDATE: WELL YES

Trump caved and removed the wall from the deal after the FAA announced the dangers to air travel and the number of flights being delayed or airports being shit down for an hour or more.

ORIGINAL POST

Air Traffic Controller union leaders are telling us they air traffic controllers are tired and making more mistakes.  The number of sick call in is increasing. This system is so stressed part of NY was on a complete shut down for a few hours.

They are complaining the shortage of support staff is making their job a lot harder.  The stress level is very high.  You probably do not know but mandatory retirement is 55, with a one year extension if there is a critical shortage.

My brother retired at 56, even though he was on duty in the NY center on 9/11.  None of the air traffic controllers recovered from 9/11.  Only a hand full who were on duty did not take disability retirement.

This is a critical situation.  Is this is what it will take to end the shut down.  Keeping American safe, my ass.
