Some time ago I talked about some of the challenges air traffic controllers are facing due to the refusal of this administration and the FAA to negotiate a collective bargaining agreement with us and impose new work rules on us. We recently got our day to give some testimony to the Aviation Sub-committee. Mel Davis is the representative for my facility (Southern California TRACON). He tells a story in the second frame about a young developmental who had a very bad day that led her into psychiatric counseling. She was in my area, really nice girl, has a daughter, her husband still works here. Was interesting to hear a story testified to Congress which I knew personally about. Its a bit long, sorry about that, but very important stuff:
