$15 Minimum Wage Fallout: Machines Replace People At McDonalds
« on: December 02, 2016, 05:20:08 AM »
We all warned them, but did the libs listen?

Earlier this month, McDonald’s announced the nationwide roll-out of touchscreen self-service kiosks. In a video the company released to showcase the new customer experience, it’s striking to see employees who once would have managed a cash register now reduced to monitoring a customer’s choices at an iPad-style kiosk.

It’s not just McDonald’s that has embraced job-replacing technology. Numerous restaurant chains (both quick service and full service) have looked to computer tablets as a solution for rising labor costs that won’t adversely impact the customer’s experience. Eatsa, a fully-automated restaurant concept, now has five locations—all in cities or states that have embraced a $15 minimum wage. And in a scene stolen from The Jetsons, the Starship delivery robot is now navigating the streets of San Francisco with groceries and other consumer goods. The company’s founder pointed to a rising minimum wage as a key factor driving the growth of his automated delivery business.

This would have been great before for them, because it frees them up to protest and riot and cause trouble, but with that money going away too, what are they going to do?

It's going to be a cold winter for some......

Does this mean that the unemployment rate will drop now?  :rolleyes:

If this move proves successful, look for more fast food places to follow their lead.

Son having conversation with father in 2015:

Son: We've been protesting evil corporate America!

Dad: You do know many small business owners buy into corporate franchises and create entry level jobs for youths like yourself, right?

Son: But they pay slave wages and people have families to support.

Dad: What part of entry level did you not grasp?

2016: My job was just eliminated and I've been replaced by a kiosk dad.

Dad: You didn't see this coming?  God I raised a moron.
