Chipping The Workers!

I am a dog person and I love my friends so I have them micro-chipped so they can be quickly identified and they can be returned home in the shortest space of time safely.

Look at that face!

It is wonderful technology……but only it used properly.

But would you consider being micro-chipped by your employer?

The prospect of UK firms implanting their staff with microchips in order to improve security and efficiency has raised concerns among trade unions.

Several legal and financial firms in the UK are reportedly in discussions with a company responsible for fitting thousands of people with chips in Scandinavia.

The chips, which are about the size of a grain of rice, are usually implanted beneath the skin between the thumb and forefinger and use radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology to allow people to replace physical key cards, IDs and even train tickets.

Personally, I do not want my employer chipping me….that would give they way too much control over my life….a control that they want to possess.

Anyone else have a thought on this?

Then I shall say TTFN…be well. be safe……chuq

  1. Definitely a step too far in control of the workforce. Who knows what other details about your life those chips might be gathering? This is The Brave New World gone crazy! The people who allowed this must want their heads examined.
    OK, that said, I can see a day not too far off in the future when all babies are chipped soon after birth. They will come up with some ‘medical advance’ that makes the parents fall for it, but it will only ever be used to track movements and habits. Glad I won’t be around to see it!
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. That would be a good reason to suggest its use. But then commerce would take over, and track every shop they went into, maybe even what they do on a computer. The possibilities are endless, sadly. All they need to do is to install ‘chip readers’ without telling anyone, and they can gather unlimited data.
