I think if I had to work for the TSA, I'd want to off myself, too. There's easier ways to make money than to stand around all day and occasionally fondle people's junk.

Right on. McD's won't let you stand around and do the 'dirty'. Grant you, some I've noticed are actually working,, doing a job. They are aware that there are video cameras all around the area and have to behave and act respectful to the public they are serving. Also the TSA agent who watches the scan of people in that booth(back-scatter comes to mind),, TSA reports that no images are saved or seen by any other agent. I don't believe that statement. How would you like to sit there and look at passenger images?? I myself would be 'super-horned' and have to be relieved ASAP.

Suicide rates are higher in all high stress professions. Physicians make a lot more money than a TSA agent, and they have a high suicide rate too. There is some correlation between income and suicide, but it may also have to do with access to mental health services. If a person has to chose between food and prescription, food will always win. I went through SEA on Tuesday, and the TSA agents were friendly and very efficient.

Not a suicide, but a poster in a blog I belong to had his wife’s fellow practitioner die of a heart attack @ age 47.

One more thing, when you hire young people for a job that takes complete dedication and devotion to, pay them less than a livable wage,put them into the stressful situation every day of having to make a completely rediculas system of security function in a manner that appears in our best interest, they should be concerned.

Who they hire is not the cream of any crop from what I have seen. They get paid what they are worth. Demos figure every one should be paid six figures no matter what. With there beinifits and such they make good money. Not much pressure either from what I have seen. Most look like they could really care less just get there eight in and skate.

It is true. People that care about their job are noticeable and kind to travellers. Others that don't are all too visible. No such thing as a smile and act if they aren't living for anything.

The TSA is the biggest threat to our security out there! Anyone who has half a brain knows the security is like a full circle, which means people are screened going in, AND going out. Is it inconvenient? Yes, but ask them this, what is to stop an employee of a company, that requires complete airport access, ramp, aircraft ect. From bringing let's say for discussion sake, explosive devices, or firearms, and hiding them on a particular aircraft, that person's partner has booked a flight on that flight, goes into the restroom for example, retrieves the item, walks out of the airport and performs another act of terrorism, or even worse, takes over the aircraft once again and pulls another 9-11. The answer is simple, America's TSA security is a dismal failure of real security.
I have flown all over this world, and with the exception of the USA, when you step off a flight, you are all escorted to another security screening before being allowed out in the airport to catch a connection or leave. The USA is also the only country that travelers have to avoid, even just to connect with another flight to yet another country, why? Because there is NO security, so unless your a saint, brain surgeon or belong to some group we deam with a talent we can benefit from, dont connect in America, because you might just walk past security and out into our country. Oh sorry I forgot, there is no security to go past.
