Ah, San Francisco… is there nothing that the nanny state can’t solve with a sufficient number of business killing regulations?

Wait'll they have to pay $20. for a hamburger, when just across the bay, a bot makes it for a buck.
Left to their own devices, there won't be any business left to regulate within the talons reach of the cities limit.

All true conservatives  should be hard against govt. banning or requiring anything like this attempt by SanFran to artificially rig the economy toward a perceived bias. They mandate a wage then they have the problem that companies can't afford people so they find a way around ... like bots. That's what you get when you make changes that contradict the basic free market ... unintended consequences.

But I'd choose to pay somewhat more if a place gives a human a job over a robot, treats me with respect, and presents a nice environment. Oh ... and the food good too.

The main point isn't the robots. It's that the govt stays out and we make our own choices based on what the market offers. What's next - government sponsored and mandated restaurants?

I see a workaround for small business. A business owner sets up a small business, say, hamburger joint, makes all employees shareholders in the business, allowing them a cut in possible profits for a lower wage.
Perfectly legal, seeing how they are owners, not employees.

Just stay out of their way and let them regulate the city into total disaster. Their leftist philosophy will continue to blind them into oblivion.

Their hypocrisy, if not so disastrous, would be hilarious, but it's fatally dangerous.

So, their solution is to ban robots, enforce a $15 minimum wage which will put many business who employ hourly wage workers out of business thus increasing unemployment especially among the poor and less skilled. The very people they are supposedly trying to help. I like it. A very sound plan :rolleyes:

Banning robots will leave the Democrats sitting at home for elections.

Where else do they vote like robots for Nancy Pelosi...?
