"It's a passive chip. It emits no signal whatsoever," Darks said. "It's the same thing as a keycard."
The real question is wether or not it's mandated by the company for employees to get the chip?
Can they legally do something like that? What if someone refuses, do they get fired?
This is bad
A company should be allowed to hire and fire at will
. The same for the chip, there are other alternatives out there that are just as good, if not better.

What's better than a chip to make certain somebody is who somebody claims to be? It seems like a fine idea to me, I'm not arguing with you, but...
Not all technological breakthroughs are conspiracies.
Sorry, but my statement remains that a company should be able to hire and fire at will, its only purpose is profit, yes? Still, I ask, why not?
