Tucker Carlson found that the FAA is trying to be PC and its hurting all of us. The FAA like many Liberally run places is choosing applicants based on diversity as opposed to merit. This is a messed up policy regardless of the job position but in this case, it could cost lives.
Air Traffic Controllers have a tough job they are directing planes from the ground in order to keep everyone flying in their own lane. This job is essential to air travel and should be given to the best candidates regardless of race, creed, gender, or socioeconomic status.
“It’s the kind of job where even a small mistake could lead instantly to the deaths of hundreds of people. Not surprisingly, the hiring standards for air traffic controllers were long among the most selective of all federal jobs.
Applicants typically needed to complete military service or pass the FAA’s Collegiate Training Initiative Program. After that, they sat for a specially-designed exam that tested for relevant job skills, skills like math ability and complex problem-solving.
Only those with the highest scores made the cut. The system was designed to choose the best. And for decades, it worked.
Then, during the Obama administration, activist bureaucrats decided that the pool of air traffic controllers wasn’t diverse enough. They never explained why diversity ought to matter in air traffic control or why it was more important than traditional goals like competence and public safety.
The FAA, without a vote, just scrapped the old hiring system and replaced it with a diversity-friendly version. Most people have no idea this happened.
The FAA now requires many of its applicants to fill out what they call a biographical questionnaire before another other screening. Those who answer the questions in a way that diversity monitors don’t like cannot be considered for hiring, no matter how much experience they have or how well they may do on the other portions of the testing.”

This Liberal nonsense about forced diversity is going to cost Americans lives. It does not help anyone to dumb down the workforce. And in this case is Forced Diversity really worth the risk?
