RIVER FALLS, Wis. (WBAY) - A Wisconsin company is holding a party Tuesday to implant employees with microchips.

Tue 12:13 PM, Aug 01, 2017

Three Square Market has received international attention since it announced the voluntary microchip program, believed to be the first of its kind in the United States.

The microchip program is voluntary. If willing, employees allow the company to implant a Radio-Frequency Identification chip between the thumb and forefinger.

The RFID chip will open doors, log in to computers, and make purchases from vending machines. The technology is similar to mobile pay services like Apple Pay and Google Wallet.

Mine too.

Put the chip in a watch, ring or bracelet. What's up with this need to place it where we can't remove or disable it?

Mark of the Beast? Gives me chills!

I wonder how many would be stupid enough to volunteer for it? I hope only those who came up with such a bright idea.

Never would I allow an employer or anyone to implant anything in me. This is nothing more than a way for people to be tracked. No thank you.

One chip that will be technologically advanced for the rest of your life? Not.

I don't understand their reasoning. While working for a tech company, swiping my badge opened doors and fingerprint readers allowed pc log-ins and lab access. Some places now use eye scanning and facial reading. There is no need for physical implants.
