Air Traffic Controllers Explain Impact Of Govt. Shutdown At Logan Airport


SHE SAYS THE WHITE HOUSE HAS NOW RESPONDED TO THE REQUEST. MEANWHILE, DEMOCRATS ON CAPITOL HILL TODAY TRY TO STRATEGIZE A WAY TO END THE NOW 27 DAY LONG SHUTDOWN. THE WELL, AIRPORTS WITH LINES GROWING AND MORE AND MORE TSA WORKERS WERE NOT GETTING PAID ARE CALLING IN SICK. AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS ARE TAKING THEIR CONCERNS TO THE FLYING PUBLIC NOW. Reporter: AS A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN LINGERS ON, IMPACTING FEDERAL WORKERS, THEY ARE BRINGING ATTENTION TO THEIR SITUATIONS. AT SOME AIRPORTS WE HAVE SEEN RALLIES, BUT TODAY AT LOGAN, AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS TRIED A DIFFERENT APPROACH. WITH MATCHING SHIRTS AND STACKS OF LEAFLETS IN HAND, MEMBERS OF THE NATIONAL AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS ASSOCIATION BRAVED THE COLD TO SPEAK WITH PASSENGERS AT LOGAN. I TRIED TO GET THE PUBLIC INVOLVED. WE ARE TRY TO EDUCATE THEM ON WHAT IS GOING ON. THEY ARE ABOUT TO FLY WITH CONTROLLERS WHO HAVE OTHER THINGS ON THEIR MIND RIGHT NOW. Reporter: THEY ENCOURAGE TRAVELERS TO CALL ELECTED OFFICIALS DEMAND AN END TO THE ONGOING GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN. THE LONGER IT DRAGS ON, THE BIGGER THE IMPACT ON AIR TRAVEL. WE ARE NOT GOING TO COMPROMISE SAFETY.

WE FEEL REALLY BAD FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT GETTING PAID. SO UNFAIR. REALLY UNBELIEVABLE THAT IS IS GONE ON THIS LONG. Reporter: IF YOU ARE TRAVELING WITHIN THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND YOU SEE THESE GUYS,

  2. I didn’t see all the hype when Obama put millions of middle America out of work and restart gas up to six dollars a gallon Obama destroyed this country I didn’t hear anybody griping then but when a few government workers are out of work for a month it probably has three months or more and tell me in their bank account because I make good money why did you complain about Obama destroying this country and all of our businesses

  3. Who gives a flying fuck about government workers they didn’t give a flying fuck about America being out of work losing their businesses because of Obama these are the very people that voted Obama in office and voted for Hillary Clinton is been fighting against trump I hope they don’t never get their jobs back I think 800,000 government employees need to lose their job permanently
