ATLANTA (FOX 5 Atlanta) - Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is a 24-hour-a-day operation. But employees say there are barely enough workers to cover all the shifts.
Airport management confirms there are nearly 100 vacancies. The majority of those openings are in the field -- everything from security to maintenance to electricians.
What does an electrician have to do with your travel? They check all the runways to make sure lights are working.
Employees who have not gone on to other cities voice their concerns. Should there be an emergency, they worry the current staff would not be adequate to handle it.
Airport officials say they are taking steps to fill the holes. They will bring on some contract workers. They are also pushing through pay raises.
