    "We've had enough of Walmart’s inaction," said Tonya Cauley, a Walmart worker who was arrested Thursday in Hyattsville, Md. "As the country's largest employer, Walmart can and should do better. We aren't calling for much—a minimum full-time yearly wage of $25,000 and assure us that we can stand up for what's right without being attacked. I'm energized by the support I saw today and will be out stronger than ever on Black Friday."
    Minimum TSA Salary
    At time of publication, the minimum salary for a TSA worker is $17,083 annually at the lowest SV pay band, according to the Transportation Security Administration's website. The maximum pay for this SV pay grade is $24,977 at time of publication. According to National Public Radio's website, this lowest pay grade makes bottom-rung TSA workers among the lowest paid of all federal government employees working in any capacity across the country. As of 2010, TSA workers have no labor union representation like other employee groups working for branches of the federal government.
