Big Brother Signs My Check

Thu, 2007-02-22 00:10

I am interested in the new procedure to track an employee's "clocked in" status. Normally I am put off by attempts to track a human and perhaps an object using RFID, but since the device is unmountable and really only is in use while you are on the premises of your job, it seems the benefits out weigh the invasion of privacy. Or maybe this is just an easy in to total world domination.

Anyway, the thing that appeals to me is being able to help people quickly and efficiently after I am technically clocked out; impossible at present for insurance reasons. Of course this will be sold to employers as a way to dock folks pay while they are goofing off. Somehow the brain waves differ when you are thinking about work and when you are thinking about fun. I am undecided about this. In one sense the employer should pay for you to be available for a certain number of hours; on the other hand it would be fun to see those slackers get docked.
