Without checks, some government representatives have turned to getting transitory employments to make a decent living. 

The TSA said it is "streamlining assets" to guarantee screening paths are appropriately staffed however cautioned that air terminals may practice alternate courses of action in view of call-outs and voyager volume. 

TSA workers screened 1.78 million travelers Sunday. Of those, "99.9 percent" stood by under 30 minutes, the office stated, and 93.1 percent stood by under 15 minutes. Saturday, the sickout rate was 8 percent. 

Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport said it shut a checkpoint Sunday to "effectively use staffing." The air terminal tweeted that such terminations were regular before the shutdown and have "insignificant, assuming any, sway on travelers."
