Under their new collective bargaining agreement, Transportation Security Administration officers get to spend more taxpayer money on their uniforms every year than a United States Marine Corps lieutenant can spend in a lifetime.
TSA employees will see their uniform allowances nearly double to $446 per year, the House Transportation Committee noted in a press release on the TSAs new collective bargaining agreement. By comparison, a combat Marine Lieutenant receives a one-time uniform allowance of $400. The cost of the increase in TSA uniform allowance is an estimated $9.63 million annually.
be careful with that type of reporting it is select reporting the fact is marine enlisted is paid more then that every year. The fact that officers do not get a yearly clothing allowance may be because of some other allowance they get. But if you feel that 400 is too much for tsa officers to get for uniforms then that is one thing but I would want to see what they spend. Myself i would hope all officers that have to ware uniforms are paid a replacement allowance.
