Description

The story revealed that federal airport screeners have the highest injury rate in the nation; injuries were causing screeners to miss about 250,000 work days a year; some of those absences led to screeners missing training, and violating a federal law requiring all checked luggage to go through bomb-detection machines. The story also found that the Transportation Security Administration had known about the injury problem for more than a year but had taken little action to improve the situation.
