Transportation Security Administration agents are working but without pay.

A lawsuit filed on behalf of federal employees says their jobs are considered essential because they are some of the most dangerous jobs in federal government.

A concern about the possible consequence to safety and processing times has reached TSA’s national office because many employees aren’t showing up for work.

KRGV’s Valerie Gonzalez has the details.
