A Pennsylvania lawmaker is setting into motion a measure to prevent microchip implants

Democratic Representative Tina Davis of Bucks County has introduced a bill that would ban private employers and government groups in Pennsylvania from requiring employees to have microchips implanted in their bodies as a condition of employment. The measure would also crack down on employers who retaliate against any worker who chooses not to get a microchip.

The move comes in response to a Wisconsin vending machine company asking its employees to voluntarily have a microchip inserted in their hand to log in to computers, use copiers, open office doors, and operate snack machines at work.
