A Wisconsin company is about to become the first in the U.S. to offer microchip implants to its employees.
Yes, you read that right. Microchip implants.
"It's the next thing that's inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it," Three Square Market Chief Executive Officer Todd Westby said.
The company designs software for break room markets that are commonly found in office complexes.
Just as people are able to purchase items at the market using phones, Westby wants to do the sam thing using a microchip implanted inside a person's hand.
"There's no GPS tracking at all," he said.

A company is "offering" to micro-chip employees to apparently make it easier to do some things at work.
Like opening doors, logging in to computers, and paying for items in the company break room.

Yep. But let's hear some cheers for those wonderful "Job Creators" out there huh??? woo......yay.......
It's nice to know that our masters find us worthy enough as property to want to keep tabs on us at all times. Sure makes you feel wanted doesn't it???
Almost like my life has some kind of value now......
Sure! It'll be voluntary just like so many workplace wellness programs are "voluntary"--you don't HAVE to do them, but your employer can charge you twice as much for your health insurance if you don't, effectively docking your pay by thousands of dollars per year. But they're technically voluntary, since you can't be suspended, reprimanded, fired, etc. for not participating. I can see the same thing happening with chips.
