A petition urging the White House to grant GS scale pay and full Title 5 rights and protections to Transportation Security Administration officers has gathered thousands of signatures. The TSA officers, who protect their fellow citizens from terrorist attacks, are paid less than nearly every other Federal employee. “It is unjust to continue to ask these officers to perform their critical and dangerous duties while not allowing them equivalence with their fellow Federal employees,” says the petition, which is being promoted by AFGE, which represents TSA officers.
