14. Actually, in the case of the TSA and ATC workers,

a 100% walkout would not be required. Both areas are already understaffed. It wouldn't take 100% to completely cripple the system. Not even nearly.

Look what happens when a major storm shuts down a few airports on the East Coast. Thousands of flights canceled. Imagine what would happen if a job action effectively shut down every major airport. The TSA screening lines are already long and slow. ATC workers are working maximum shifts, due to understaffing. I just read the other day that a sizable percentage of ATC workers are elegible for full retirement right now, but are staying because there's nobody to replace them.

No, a 100% walkout would not be needed.
