In addition to TSA Agents, air traffic controllers are among other federal workers who have not received payment under the shutdown. Why does this matter? The organization has been trying to encourage government officials to end the shutdown, to the benefit of both shutdown-exempt workers who aren't receiving pay and furloughed members who are now out of a job. As such many staff are having to make hard decisions about how to spend their time.

This includes the planned shutdown of Concourse G after 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

Pittsburgh International Airport serves more than 9 million passengers annually on 17 carriers. The reason for the closure is a shortage of security screeners. While the battle over the partial government shutdown takes place in Washington D-C, it's putting a strain on people here in Hawaii.

"It is completely unacceptable that the women and men who risk their lives safeguarding our airports are still required to report for work without knowing when they'll be paid again", AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. said.

Beyond stalling development and certifications throughout the industry, the shutdown is affecting travel. This is a choice that many workers have had to face, especially those who have a longer commute.

The move comes as the airport says TSA screeners are calling in sick at double the normal rate. In fact, Simple Flying has learnt that some employees have been forced to quit as a result of the shutdown. Pre-check is funded by user fees so it is not affected by the shutdown.

"Everyone is angry, everyone is upset, and everyone is scared because we don't know how we are going to provide for our families moving forward", he said.
