Finger scanners to keep tabs on librarians
Librarians are used to scanning books, but the librarians themselves may be getting scanned if a local council in suburban Melbourne has its way. The AM program has revealed that the City of Monash in Melbourne's south-east is planning to introduce vein scanning technology to track employees' work hours.
The council says it is still considering the plan and has made no definite decision yet, but the Australian Services Union says the council has confirmed it is planning to introduce the scanners in its libraries next month.
