Big Spenders

You bet, but not on $15.hr wages for low skill workers. The “Fight for $15” had an effect but not the one the Jackass Party and the Unions hoped to have as an outcome.

‘Progress’? McDonald’s Is Making a Massive Move to Automation

It started out as a “Fight for 15,” but McDonald’s employees may not be lovin’ it when their company’s new policy kicks in.

The popular fast food chain has announced that it will now replace its front counter employees with kiosks — and that may just be the beginning.

According to the Tribunist, there will soon be limited interaction between front-of-house employees and customers. Tim Kae of CNBC also reports that the technology upgrades, which are part of what McDonald’s calls their “Experience of the Future,” includes digital ordering kiosks that will be offered in 2,500 restaurants by the end of the year, along with table delivery. These systems are already in test markets in select stores. [snip]

This trend of robots taking over the world comes during a left-led push for a higher minimum wage for entry-level workers in the United States, especially those in fast food services.

While the news isn’t good for employees, shareholders seem to be happy about the move to automation. McDonald’s stock prices have risen 26 percent in just the last year.

This move by McDonald’s and it’s immediate and projected success may strike a blow to those calling for a $15 minimum wage. Rather than see their wages nearly doubled, many employees are about to find themselves out of a job entirely.

I suppose that’s progress. Or, at least, “progressive.”

Like every other wonderful idea dreamed up by the Left and jammed into place by a legislating body voting in by a batch of fools looking for the FREE LUNCH, it turns around and bites them hard on the ass.
One can rack this up along with Detroit and Illinois, two other great liberal triumphs that the State Owned Media ignores.
