The partial government shutdown is affecting security at DFW Airport.

Dallas (WBAP/KLIF) – The Transportation Security Administration says it’s been affected by a wave of sick calls as the government shutdown goes into its third week with no end in sight. According to the union that represents TSA employees two to three times as many workers as usual are calling in sick at DFW Airport. The union says some of those are protesting the shutdown, but many more have been forced to work additional jobs, or stay home to care for children since without their paychecks they can’t meet their obligations.
