‘The rent is not going to happen.’ TSA officers brace for second missed paycheck as shutdown drags on

More than 50,000 Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers have been ordered to work despite the government shutdown and they now face their second missed paycheck since the shutdown began on December 22, 2018.

Some air traffic controllers and aviation safety inspectors are affected by the shutdown too, reports Leslie Josephs for CNBC.com.

Higher-than-normal levels of sick calls have been made among TSA agents as the government shutdown drags on.
