LaborTech 2004: Spying and Surveillance in the workplace
On April 3rd, three panelists spoke at LaborTech 2004 in Palo Alto on the topic of "Spying and Surveillance", including such relatively under-reported issues as RFID technology.
"Spying and Surveillance, And How to Defend Our Privacy"
The role of the Internet and media monopolies is not only to own these tools, but also to use them to control us. And increased surveillance of workers is being justified in the name of "Homeland Security". It is time to learn how we can defend our privacy in the workplace.
Deborah Pierce, Executive Director of Privacy Activism, discusses background checks & data aggregators.
Nancy Bupp, IAM Education Department, talks about workers' privacy rights (or the lack thereof).
Edward Hasbrouck, National Writers Union (UAW Local 1981), on emerging RFID technology being implemented now by Homeland Security.
