Voices against the new surveillance system

However, not everyone is okay with this new system. As effective as the system is to ensure that small crimes do not occur, people think that it will end up doing more harm than good. Eva Blum-Dumontet, a senior researcher at Privacy International belives that this is a method companies use to target workers. Since this forces employees to live up to the company’s expectations of productivity, this can increase toxic work habits and deteriorate mental health.

Additionally, a past occurrence at a 7-Eleven further proves this theory. A consultant highlighted that voice announcements of a robber alerted them. Startling someone with a rifle or weapon can lead to unwanted panic and lead to injury for cashiers or other customers.
