Wisconsin Company To Implant Microchips In Employees

KSTP 5 News

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.

“We’ll come up, scan the item,” he explained, while showing how the process will work at an actual break room market kiosk. “We’ll hit pay with a credit card, and it’s asking to swipe my proximity payment now. I’ll hold my hand up, just like my cell phone, and it’ll pay for my product.”

More than 50 Three Square Market employees are having the devices implanted starting next week. Each chip is about the size of a single grain of rice.

Along with purchasing market kiosk items, employees will be albe to use the chip to get into the front door and log onto their computers.

Each chip costs $300 and the company is picking up the tab. They’re implanted between a person’s thumb and forefinger.  Westby added the data is both encrypted and secure.

“There’s no GPS tracking at all,” he said.

No one who works at Three Square Market is required to get the chip implant.

  1. Last year, transitioning from self employed to semi self employed and taking a ‘job’.
    I filled out 6 to 10 (can’t remember) applications.
    Not having done so since before 9/11.
    Going against my beliefs, I gave one of these peckheads a piss sample.
    Although I haven’t smoked the left handed tabaccy in years the sample came back positive. (as they say)
    Told two more: ” I have two middle finger samples, will that do?!” Watched the expressions, and walked the hell out.
    It was really quite enjoyable… 🙂

  2. Wisconsin does have allot of empty heads in their H.R. departments.
    I personally have a long controversial history with them. Authoritarian control freaks who make life miserable for those around them. They generally don’t like me. I tried to be as civil with them as I could but they just can’t seem to find a way.
    It would be the same as trying to get the government and media to tell the truth.
    Once a department’s tool box includes lying, propaganda, and general B.S., it works so well for their fat, lazy asses, why use any other tools?
    Do I have a problem with them in general?…….could be…

      1. Flee; when I hear others going through the trauma, and I occasionally do. I think,….Retirement sure is good….
        Corporate America is a health hazard and should be avoided like any
        Cancer causing agent or psychotropic drug prescription.

        1. I hear ya brother..
          That’s why I smoke weed and drink everyday.

          It eases the pain of my..

          Post Traumatic Stress Work Syndrome.

          Plus I haven’t had medical insurance since 2009 and I won’t take their drugs.

  3. It figures, the place I just left recently installed an open vending service like this. Requiring a financial institution sign up and carrying a dongle to use the system. Next the chips. Then……fitting the plant with devices to record movements, locations and time intervals of those “chips” around the plant.
    That is a guarantee coming from one who has seen the dishonesty of American corporate H.R. No matter what they claim, they eventually will not be able to resist the temptation.
    Like a dog told not to eat the steak dangling in front of it on a string.
    Sort of like this dog:

  4. This will happen to me over my dead body, as this is all about control. Never give up security / privacy / anonymity for a little convenience … EVER!

  5. “… Westby wants to do the sam thing using a microchip implanted inside a person’s hand.”

    The hand?

    Where have I heard THAT before.

    “Along with purchasing market kiosk items, employees will be albe to use the chip to get into the front door and log onto their computers.”

    Look at the bright side.

    When you smoke some POS in management that screws with you or your job, you can always blame it on the chip.
