Career chips are microchips implanted into people's palms which assign them a permanent career. People are given the chip for the job they're best at. It is against the law to not have a career chip implanted, or to have it removed, and the punishment for such an act is to be "fired, out of a cannon, into the sun". People who take such actions are labeled as "job deserters." Despite this, there have been numerous instances when career chips have been removed and implanted without any legal consequences or cannon firing.
