- Employment at will
When thinking about privacy laws and the collecting of citizens' private information, there are certainly a few things that come to mind. First and foremost is the technology that helps us in so many facets of life and has brought us closer together, has also began to bring into focus the intricate parts of our lives that most people would have never had to worry about as early as 20 years ago. The ability for anyone to mine information from anyone they want for a price or for free is available at anyone's fingertips with just a little bit of work.
The Patriot Act signed into law by ex President Bush allows the government to wire-tap anyone they suspect of being a terrorist or having terrorist ties, searching through business records for anything they find suspicious, and also surveillance of those they consider ?lone wolves? without any specific terrorist ties but are doing something they deem suspicious. This has given rise to lots of worries about the government spying on citizens just because they can, and they don't really need a reason to.
