Lack of work ethic and leadership is apparent not just in the air traffic control
towers run by the FAA, as reported widely in the news. A dearth of motivation pervades
the entire organization.
A few years ago, an FAA employee masturbated in front of a female engineering contractor.
The next day, in spite of (or because of?) her advanced education and her attempts
to develop “perfect airspace” solutions, the woman was fired. So rather than go back
to another FAA contractor position, she used her talents to produce Budget Justified,
a movie, web series, and video-short reenacting what she witnessed in FAA and contractor
Budget Justified was written and produced as a series of 50 short episodes for the
web. The first two webisodes can be seen here. You can also read the main character’s
blog about each webisode. Bloopers included.
