One of the newest technologies being used to monitor workers is AI-powered surveillance cameras. But In Seattle, a few hundred workers are striking over a new surveillance system at their workplace. The workers make sandwiches for Homegrown, a sandwich company with a dozen locations around the city. Homegrown has put artificial intelligence powered cameras in drivers’ vehicles. The cameras watch the drivers and automatically record any unsafe behavior, like not wearing a seatbelt or using a cell phone. The drivers say the cameras are intrusive and invade their privacy. They say they are constantly being watched and judged. The drivers are also worried that the data from the cameras could be used to fire them. Now, the drivers will be allowed to cover up the cameras. This is a big victory for the workers. It shows that they can stand up to their employer and win.
