According to someofus.com, Tesco is forcing its warehouse workers and drivers to wear electronic armbands that can monitor how hard they're working. People can be punished if they don't meet strict targets.
A former Tesco worker says the armbands are used to time every task. If an employee doesn’t work fast enough, they get a bad score and can be hauled in front of management.
Tesco admits it is using electronic armbands on warehouse workers and drivers but claims this is just to cut down on paperwork. But the real story is that these armbands are like Big Brother in the workplace, watching every move a person makes.
Tesco isn't known for doing business ethically or treating people well. But is this going too far?

I thought this was quite amusing...
