They want it for all welfare recipients, and the reason is because many recipients are bound for the Middle east to join ISIS and somehow keep collecting the money.
Looks like Finland might be getting nervous.
Another problem is people take out big loans before leaving for the lands of ISIS because cash is a status within ISIS.
What's next?? The "Thought Police" !!
Another big government flop.
so much hatred for precipitants of individual welfare but no none for corporate welfare. Why would that be?
Perhaps its because those who hate individuals who claim welfare, have never heard of corporate welfare because the man on the TV does not talk about it so for the haters of welfare for individuals, it does not exist.
Their training on welfare issues by the media does not include training on corporate welfare so therefore it does not exist.
I have no issues with individuals claiming the dole and nor will I ever have any until there is just as much hatred for corporate welfare and just as much hatred for those who get and just as big an outcry about corporate welfare as there is about those on the dole.
Finnish Politician Suggests Tracker Implants for Welfare Recipients
A politician from Finland's conservative Finns Party suggested implanting welfare recipients with satellite-tracking chips following news that some recipients continued receiving payments after leaving the country to join ISIL.
A member of Finland's right-wing Finns Party, Pasi Maenranta, has suggested implanting all recipients of government assistance with satellite-tracked chips if they choose to leave the country.
Maenranta made the proposal after Finnish media revealed that some recipients of government assistance continued to receive payments after leaving the country to join ISIL in Syria and Iraq. Maenranta does not believe that the idea raises privacy concerns because of existing tracking technology in services such as Facebook.

They created ISIS and the people feeling the need to go join them?
And created the idea of cheating a system to your own advantage?
Holy crap, lets get the Fins!
The suggestion is made by one person, not the gov.
You realize there is a difference right?

Just because ONE crazy politician suggests a crazy idea does not mean they will adopt said idea.
God! You could right a book on some of the crazy # US politicians come up with, left and right!
