I recently applied for a TSA airport security position. I am taking the test in a week. However, I can't find anything online regarding their salary. Any one has an idea? Thanks.

PayScale - United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) Employer Wages, Hourly Wage Rate

That wasn't too hard to find

I am teaching someone that works for the TSA as a screener. He makes 7.75 an hour.

Agreed, you would think people who are helping to keep passengers safe in our airways would make a little bit more than that.

There was a TSA Agent who was stealing stuff from checked in baggage checks. - Must be because of his pay!

I think it is offensive to offer someone minimum for most jobs unless you are a high school student and live at home.

You don't need any damn skills for that job. You just sit there or stand there hassling people all day. Minimum wage is more than enough!

I am sure they have no shortage of people wanting that job, especially in this economy of 7%+ unemployment. People are going to take whatever they can get!

Who cares if you do not need skills people have to do that job and should be payed a fair wage. Just because a lot of people can do it does not make it not valuable. What an idiot.
