July 31, 2013
A report out of the Government Accountability Office shows that TSA employee misconduct is rapidly rising, with a 26% spike in reported incidents over the past three years.
The report detailed instances of theft, sleeping on the job, leaving work without permission, and allowing friends and family members to bypass security screening procedures, to name but a few.
The report states that there have been close to ten thousand discovered cases of misconduct since 2010, 1,900 of which were classified as security threats.
When you consider that There are around 55,000 employees, these figures are appalling.
