WND – August 5, 2017
It was once something out of science fiction. Now, it’s just another day at the office.
A company in Wisconsin, Three Square Market, has introduced a “voluntary microchipping” program for employees, with just under half its workers participating.
The company claims it is the first use of this technology in the United States and proponents assert it will allow employees to log on to computers, access restricted areas and purchase food simply through the use of the chip. The company, which specializes in “micro market technology,” hopes the chip could eventually be used in “self-checkout/self-service applications” in businesses like convenience stores and fitness centers.
The RFID microchips are not quite Orwellian. They have limited range of only a few feet and do not have GPS, so employees cannot be tracked. Officials also claim data in the microchip is encrypted.
