  • Would you let your company microchip you?

    Seems a bit excessive to me... what if you change jobs?

    I'm self-employed, but don't give my wife any ideas.

      My company won't even potato chip me.

      I did see that article. This should start a nifty batch of end times proficy. I can do all that with my badge, I don't need to be chipped.

        Seems like the liability issues would far exceed any benefits.

          I wouldn't even wear their ball caps and t shirts, so no.

            I'm tempted to ask who you work for, but maybe that's not a good idea...

          I wonder about that... maybe they're playing it as though it's really being offered to employees mainly for the employee's convenience and benefit, and since it's optional, they may have written up the microchip acceptance agreement documents (and you just know those have got to exist) in such a way that it states that it is something the employee is requesting, and therefore that it is the employee who assumes all risk for any surgical complications, hacking of the system that may occur, or the risk of being targeted with an RFID reader by some shady character and the resulting identity theft, loss / misuse of their personal data, etc. etc.

            Someone in a very sensitive position where there was a likelihood of them being kidnapped then yes. Otherwise no.
            I'm retired now but when I was working my company had my cell phone number and could call me any time they needed me. Fortunately it only happened a few times over the 10 years that I worked for them.

              I don't have the numbers, but I suspect that badge losses cost companies a lot in lost time and productivity, as well as the badge replacement costs. I have worked where I needed a badge to access certain secure areas and buildings, and I know that even when there were serious repercussions for losing one, people still lost or destroyed them on a semi-regular basis.

              With this system, there's no longer a badge to lose, which would save the company time and money, and also reduces the security risk that comes along with every lost badge until it is reported and unauthorized.

              It may have some advantages for employees, but the advantages to the company probably exceed them.

              As far as Biblical prophecy, there's nothing that prevents people from buying or selling without this implant, and having it implanted in your head doesn't seem to be an option, so I think everyone's safe - according to what the Bible says about the Mark, I don't think it qualifies as the Mark of the Beast.

                I won't even give them my fingerprint.

                Also, from the article...
                "purchase food at work"
                I wonder how many companies provide food free of charge these days.

                  With the bible mentioning it 6 times about sealing your doom with no chance of redemption if you take the mark, what other kind of mark could it be? I know in my relative conservative area, there would be an uproar. Many do not even like the chip in CC cards.

                  My org just installed one of these clerkless food vendors (not the same one as in the article)
                  They are not asking or offering to chip us.
                  I don't think I would ever agree to that.
                  I won't even FB.

                    No, never... EVER!

                      No.

                      I have a small problem with GPS monitors on the company trucks. I don't drive every day, and I understand that in some situations that technology can be useful.

                      But personal microchips are an order of magnitude or two more invasive. Nope.

                        We are accepting in society the lack of privacy more and more. Take the use of a credit card or the shopping reward cards stores have. Is it really a method to keep customers? Why not just lower your prices? They say you are rewarded for using it, as they now have an account of you, your shopping times, what you personally bought and the amounts, a data base on you to possibly sell off, and to who??

                        You now are fined, looking at it the other way, if you do not SUBMIT your personal info, having to pay more. It is no reward, trust me, yet millions go right along with it unaware.

                          I'm self employed so it isn't an issue. But, if I did work for a company I would say NO.
