Air traffic controllers, flight attendants, and pilots are warning about serious safety concerns if the government shutdown continues.
The shutdown, which is now in its 34th day, has forced air traffic controllers, air marshals, Transportation Security Administration officers, FBI agents, and other safety staff to work without pay, according to the statement.
“In our risk averse industry, we cannot even calculate the level of risk currently at play, nor predict the point at which the entire system will break. It is unprecedented,” reads the statement issued by the presidents of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, Air Line Pilots Association and the Association of Flight Attendants.
