TSA Employees More Likely to Have Money Troubles and Bad Credit


An awesome tipster (send in your tips here) sent in a recent government report on payday lending contained some interesting facts about the financial health of government security/law enforcement employees.

It also contained this gem of a chart showing how banks are profiting more and charging much higher interest rates than payday lenders are.

If we use the prevalence of payday loans among full time employees (FTE) then the employees at the Transportation Security Administration are ten times more likely to have credit problems than employees at Immigration and Customs Enforcement or the Federal Bureau of Investigation and five times more likely than Customs and Border Protection. – Source

Bottom line, if you want to bride a government security employee with money troubles, go for someone in TSA.

Now isn’t that comforting.
