Sea-Tac was already dealing with a shortage of TSA agents before the government shutdown.

Now, the situation is even worse. Some have already quit since the shutdown started.

As others continue to work without pay, more are calling in sick.

At New York’s JFK International Airport, as many as 170 TSA employees have called out each day this week.

The number of people calling out sick have increased by 200 percent to 300 percent at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
