Employee Monitoring Might Explain Your Missing Packages

As day to day office work becomes more and more digital, an increasing number of corporations and institutions are monitoring the movements and communications of office workers. Esther Kaplan uncovers many of these disturbing and intrusive behaviors, which inform hiring and firing decisions, and can push employees to their limits, in her article for Harper's, "The Spy Who Fired Me." For instance, UPS workers are tracked and monitored to meet increasingly burdensome quotas, which is why some UPS workers will leave a notice form on your door instead of trying to deliver a package, in order to save minutes on a delivery route.

3. Maybe UPS having someone

on the board of ALEC is not such a good idea.

I DO feel sorry for the employees, who are mostly just trying to make a living.
