- Microchip bill passed in US state of Michigan parliament
- Companies will not be able to put chip in the body of their employees in the coming time
- Companies started installing chips in 2017
A bill called Microchip Protection has been passed in the US state of Michigan’s parliament. Under this bill, now private companies will not be able to put special technology microchips in the body of their employees. Let us tell you that in the year 2017, companies had implemented a rule, under which RFID microchip was installed in the body of employees. The doors opened automatically when employees entered with these chips and the computer was turned on when they sat in their place. Apart from this, companies used to monitor their employees through these chips.
Bill passed in 10 states
After the passage of this bill, companies will no longer be able to force their employees to chip. However, this bill is not yet fully legislated. It needs to be passed in the US Senate. Earlier this bill has been passed in 10 states including California and Arkansas.
Employees privacy may end
Michigan Parliament’s Bron Kell says that companies’ use of new technology chips can end employee privacy. Also data leaks can happen. On the other hand, Todd Westby, CEO of M32, the company that uses these chips, has said that employees can save information about ATM cards, passports and business cards. This will reduce the chances of missing or stealing these important documents.
The price of these chips is Rs. 23,000
The size of these special technology micro chips is equal to rice grains and they cost Rs 23,000. These chips can be applied to any part of the arm through surgery. After this, users can pay with a gesture of their hand with the door open.
