Burger-flipping may be taken over by R2D2 and 3CPO in the future. Well, better them than illegal aliens.
A recent news article reports “Self-serve touchscreen kiosks are heading to two of the largest cities in Kansas, dealing yet another blow to labor unions fighting for higher wages for an increasingly obsolete pool of low-skilled fast food workers.”
Liberal politicians have forced business owners in some cities and states to pay $15 per hour, but they didn’t think about automation possibly being cheaper.
The article notes “The new McDonald’s in Arkansas City, Kansas, opened its doors last month and introduced touchscreen ordering kiosks. According to Michael Lane of Lane Enterprises, McDonald’s in the city of Wichita will feature the same kiosks in the coming weeks. ‘They’re going to roll out nationally in every restaurant where it makes sense,’ he said of McDonald’s ‘Create Your Taste’ touchscreen kiosks, which allow customers to customize their own meals and burgers.”
“The automated kiosks help mitigate long lines and wait times and also provide a remedy for local language barriers, providing ordering prompts in both English and Spanish. Customers who use the kiosk to order will have their meal handed to them. The touch-screen kiosks are already a hit with customers, young and old.”
“Panera Bread was among America’s first food service outlets to head down the path of lower labor costs and service efficiency that self-serving kiosks provide and unveiled its ‘Panera 2.0’ initiative in April 2014. Before Panera Bread, Chili’s Grill & Bar began testing tablets that allow diners to order beverages and desserts and pay their entire bill, without having to flag down a server. An initial 180 tablets in a handful of Chili’s restaurants soon ballooned into 45,000 tablets across 823 Chili’s restaurants. The restaurant’s executives called it ‘the largest rollout of tabletop tablets in the U.S. In March 2015, Breitbart News reported that Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurant chain CEO Andy Pudzer said he has plans to fully embrace automated machines.'”
Increasingly, low IQ jobs are going to disappear in America, especially if Democrats mandate that dish-washing and fry-basket-shaking jobs must be paid $15 per hour.
The vast majority of Latinos with an average IQ of 87 and American Blacks with an average IQ of 85 are simply not going to be employable. They will become a permanent welfare class, whose only function will be to produce more of themselves and to vote for the Democrat Party.
