Does Your Employer Want You Microchipped?

July 26, 2017

What do you look for in a job. Good pay... good benefits... free microchip implants for all workers.  [record scratch] Whaaaa---??

Yes, there is a company that is offering to implant the $300 microchips in its employees --at absolutely no cost to them! (Yes, because that's the part that's crazy!) LiveScience says the Three Square Market (32M) company is holding an inaugural "chip party" for employees at its Falls River, Wisconsin headquarters August 1st.

The cyborg implant will allow employees the opportunity to log in to computers, open doors and use the copy machine without having to rely on analog alternatives like fingers and brains to accomplish those tasks.

The microchips rely on the same radio frequency identification technology used to track goods in a supply chain, find lost dogs and cats and clock people's times in marathons. The chips will be inserted below the skin in the space between the thumb and the index finger, and company expects about 50 employees to be chipped.  ("Expects" being the opperative word here.)
