The Valentine’s Day ‘scavenger hunt’ at Goodwill locations across the Piedmont was a success on Tuesday!

BTW: Congratulations to Kimberly Crowder (and family) who found the $250 dollar VISA card grand prize at the Goodwill store in Hickory.   Kimberly mentioned that her son found the $250 dollar VISA card while trying on

pants  ? …and he hates trying on pants!  I bet Mom is glad that he did!

Hiding devices in lights and ID badges, your boss can legally track you everywhere but the bathroom.

New Office Sensors Know When You Leave Your Desk

For example: One security company ‘Enlighted’ has installed sensors that collect data at more than 350 companies, including 15% of the Fortune 500.

They’re hidden in lights, ID badges, and elsewhere, tracking things such as conference room usage, employee whereabouts, and even how long someone goes without speaking to another co-worker.

-Legally speaking, U.S. businesses are within their rights to track employees.

“Employers can do any kind of monitoring they want in the workplace that doesn’t involve the bathroom…as long as the data is kept anonymous…?

says Lewis Maltby, president of the National Workrights Institute.

A majority of U.S. workers the Pew Research Center surveyed last year said they’d tolerate surveillance and data collection in the name of safety.
