Huffington Post reports on welfare surveillance

The Huffington Post also recently reported on the intersections of poverty and surveillance:

“For poor people, surveillance is an everyday reality.Take welfare recipients. To prevent fraud, the government uses eight surveillance tools to police those on Ontario Works, according to a study by Krystle Maki at Queen’s University. They range from old-school techniques such as random house visits, snitch lines and drug testings to a web of databases known as “mashups.””
