An Air Traffic Controller's View of FAA Plans

NPR's Michele Norris talks with Hamid Ghaffari, an air traffic controller with the FAA and a union representative with the National Air Traffic Controllers Association. Mr. Ghaffari says that the FAA's plan to hire more controllers is not adequate to address the severe staffing shortages in FAA facilities around the country.
