A Word from an Air Traffic Controller

Regarding my posts on abolishing the FAA, I received this word from an air traffic controller, and am posting it with his permission: “Out of a normal 8 hour work day… maybe at most 4 1/2 hours is actually spent working by ARTCC controllers. The rest is on break. The east and northeast is rabidly unionized with unionization rates above 90%. Already those of us working west of the Mississippi are being told not to reroute or send anyone direct headed east because of workload concerns. Much of this is union politics, party politics, and political grandstanding.”
