Way to go, Mr. Buttigieg.
In the spirit of the utterly useless Biden regime, Buttigieg has taken it upon himself to set yet another poor record.
This time, Buttigieg will apparently be responsible, at least in part, for airline disruptions that will continue over the next decade.
That’s right: In all likelihood, the airline industry may well suffer from serious inefficiencies and disturbances for the next ten years, largely courtesy of an ultra-woke Biden administration.
As reported by the Daily Mail, varied airline officials, including the CEO of United Airlines, have pointed to the poorly run Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Naturally, the FAA falls under the domain of Pete Buttigieg, who blames literally everyone but himself for the present state of chaotic affairs.
Buttigieg was even ballsy enough to challenge airline executives directly, claiming that under 10 percent of the delays had been caused by failures in FAA infrastructure.
“Well, first of all, let me be very clear, that even according to the industry’s own data, air traffic control staffing issues account for less than 10% of the delay minutes in the system, but, I would rather that number be zero … So even though this isn’t the number one cause or even the number two cause of flight disruptions, it is something that is very important to tackle, and we’re doing exactly that,” Buttigieg brayed.
Want to know one way to “tackle” the issue, Mr. Buttigieg?
Don’t fire tons of pilots who didn’t receive the COVID vaccine, which is clearly where the shortage originates from in the first place.
Especially when such pilots are clearly not easy to replace.
According to Wichita State University emeritus professor Dean Headley, who publishes Airline Quality Ratings annually, airlines can generally train up to a maximum of 1,800 pilots per year.
Furthermore, pilots must retire when they are 65 years old.
So, with those two statistics in mind, the airline industry will likely have a shortage of upwards of 24,000 pilots by 2026.
A shortage initiated by the Biden regime’s utterly unconstitutional vaccine mandate.
The great irony, of course, is that the White House has caused more danger to the public by terminating airline pilots who rightfully questioned whether or not the vaccine was right for them, especially given the apparent inability to fill shortages now.
More than one individual commented on the article, pointing out rather obvious solutions that bungling Buttigieg apparently fails to consider.
“Stop sending all young adults to university. We don’t need all these art history and business administration degrees. Learn a trade. It will pay more than the average 4-year degree,” one commenter drawled.
Seriously. And American taxpayers don’t need to pay off the debts for individuals who chose deliberately useless degrees either.
Truly, considering that pilots must retire by 65 and air traffic controllers must retire by 56, it’s quite remarkable that similar age requirements are not in place for the President of the United States.
Especially when the president continues to navigate America down a very, very dangerous path.
