    Baltimore Sun: Ranking agencies by job satisfaction: Annual report finds federal workers less content than workers in private sector

    It is not surprising that TSA employees rank among the federal workers who are least content with their jobs ... Employment specialists say job satisfaction is critical for doing the public's business.


    The partnership develops its rankings using employee responses to a survey by the Office of Personnel Management. The 2012 survey of more than 687,000 workers was released last week. The OPM said 80 percent of them enjoyed their work, and more than two-thirds would recommend their agency to others. The partnership's report for 2012 is due out next month.

    The report that's out is here:

    Note that the Baltimore Sun is misleading when it discusses results for TSA -- this report only breaks it down by department (e.g. Homeland Security). The more detailed report that breaks the results down by agency is due out in about a month.

    I'm hoping this leads to mass depression and suicides among TSA and DHS workers.

    It would improve air travel and reduce the deficit at the same time. Seems like a win-win to me.

    Methinks they're too stupid to die.

    Calling for mass suicides is a bit harsh. Making a screeners job hard is fair game.

    Anecdotal evidence suggests you are correct.
