Invading Workers' Privacy

If you haven't heard of the new CVS health policy - go here.

I don't know about anyone else, but I am outraged.  We need to put a stop to this corporate invasion of workers' private lives.  Another example: there's a hospital in Phila. that will be stop hiring smokers.   What next? No workers who drink iced tea?

I've written on this issue before, and it seems to be getting worse.  One report said CVS would also be insisting employees take steps to MANAGE their health.  Another report, if I remember correctly, said the percent of companies using some sort of punishment for not submitting to corporate health dictums has increased to around 20%.

We must not just shake our heads and think - oh, it's the OTHER guys and gals who are affected.  WE might be next.  Employment is employment, not a license to control employees off the clock.

Let's do what we can to oppose these invasive behaviors.  Be sure to post a comment if you hear of or are working on any action .
