Oh good grief, who can think of an idea worse than allowing TSA airport screeners to unionize?
During consideration of the 9/11 Commission bill, the Senate approved this amendment that would give Transportation Security Administration airport screeners the right to unionize. There are 45,000 TSA airport screeners. Opponents of the move argue it would add more bureaucracy to the system and interfere with the agencyâ€™s flexibility. Supporters say the amendment allows for flexibility in reassigning workers. President Bush has indicated he would veto the final bill if the provision was included.
Great, so they'll get paid more and work slower. At least there's hardly any corruption or crime associated with labor unions!
