I left questioning what type of training the TSA employees are receiving and the type of personnel they are actually hiring.
This is the correct take-away from this story, too. Not that the random employee doesn't know the ID
because they are stupid, but because they are POORLY TRAINED. This job does not take a college degree. It involves the ability to read names, dates, and recognize correct forms of IDs, be able to scan them, look for holograms, and hopefully find at least some forgeries (nobody could find them all without extensive time per ID
If the agent doesn't know a DC license, or a DOD ID
, or a Passport Card, or what a proper Canadian or EU passport looks like, or what an official Utah license looks like for that matter, then that is bad TRAINING, because frankly, not many of us here would be able to tell a real vs. fake license from all 50 states, let alone distinguish all other forms of acceptable ID
. We would need to be trained to do so, and then have the training updated frequently for changes that are always happening.
training is obviously not great...
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
