This is ridiculous and I can't believe it hasn't been posted on here yet. Not only is there a safety issue with not having the most qualified individuals for the ATC jobs, but there's going to be a lack of efficiency with regards to spacing the aircraft out which will lead to airport saturation. This will create major delays while also costing the airlines more for fuel.
The investigation resulted in an article by Adam Shapiro, exposing a story of corruption and attempts to stoke favoritism, where an FAA employee and head of an NBCFAE chapter worked to increase the likelihood that minority candidates would succeed under the FAA’s new hiring practices.
Shapiro points out that “It takes several years of study to acquire the complex skills necessary to become an air traffic controller, or ATC. It’s considered among the highest pressured jobs in America.”
The FAA’s only requirements, to apply, are be a U.S. citizen, have a high school diploma, speak English and pass the FAA’s new BQ, Biographical Questionnaire.
