"This is a really stupid use for biometrics. What's wrong with a badge?"

If it's just a timeclock I don't see how a fingerprint is useful. But for facility access it's hard to get to work and realize you don't have your finger when you get to the door.

At a medical facility the staff may be changing clothes at the start and end of their shifts. The dirty scrubs hamper often has more than a few badges in it at the end of the day.

(Mine's the one with the Deluxe Edition BluRay of Blazing Saddles in the pocket)
