Probably what a lot of California Wal-mart employees are thinking as they were recently fingerprinted. And although Wal-mart bashers might like to believe it is just another intrusive step by the retailing giant, at the cost of $32 per employee (and its one of six warehouses that will need to be done), it is highly unlikely that this is something Wal-mart was keen on doing. The real culprit is a new interpretation of a California law regulating facilities that have products containing pseudoephedrine. See the story from the Redding paper, and thanks to Susan Heathfield at About Human Resources for the pointer.
