McDonald’s Announces Its Answer to $15 an Hour Minimum Wage – Touch-Screen Cashiers

McDonalds Self-service kiosks will expand to at least 2,000 locations in 2015…


This is exactly what the left pushed for.  Fast food chains were never meant to be a place for someone to raise a family of 6. They were to be part time positions with some full-time advancements. Mostly the fast food restaurants were for school aged kids, to learn how to interact with people, with a job, to offer spending money, and to begin responsibility learning for their future. The part time position was not intended to pay for a house, it is a stepping stone to move on….

$15.00/hr x 8 hrs= $120/day x 5 days= $600/week x 52 weeks = $31,200/year!!

Of course when this happens, like it did today in Los Angeles , the poor and unskilled workers will go on unemployment, then on Welfare, and cost American workers more to support them.

McDonald’s recently came out with their answer to those that want $15/hr pay. Robots!

Many other food chains AND now RESTAURANTS alike are now switching over to kiosks/touchscreens to replace their cashiers, and servers too!

For the same reasons as McDonalds is making this move worldwide, these businesses simply cannot afford to operate and pay your demanded minimum wage of $15 per hour plus benefits to their workers/servers!

Got any other bright ideas Mr. Obama?

Directly from YOUR rhetoric and demands against Americas private businesses, you and your minions just singlehandedly put 10’s of thousands of minimum wage workers nationwide on the unemployment line!

In addition, Mr. Obama, YOU have caused these minimum wage jobs to be permanently eliminated and swept awayfrom America ‘s workplace FOREVER!



Like weed creep, infestation by varmints intent on spreading disease eating organisms  across vast amounts of planted acreage have dessimated huge swaths of America’s farmland.  Pesticides, for instance Round Up, generically modified organisms and such, have saved farmers billions of dollars by increasing crop yield with an exponential savings in labor. But a new animal has arrived with the intention of doing farm work that has traditionally been done by imported and illegal labor.

Little notice has been given to the fledgling automation of the agriculture industry; although they have been mechanizing for many years, for instance tree shakers cause fruit, such as apples, peaches and plumbs, to drop into basket type devices where they are harvested, washed, quality controlled, boxed and marketed eliminating the need for manual labor. Strawberry farmers are now using video sensors attached to robots to pick the ripe berry without human interventions. Whole fields are picked in a matter of hours that once took days. Planting seeds by machines has replaced the human hand,

The heady days of Cezar Chavez’s army of Mexican grape pickers is over.  As labor demands have increased, farmers have explored new ways of doing things by eliminating what has been previously done by hand. Automation is now doing jobs what were once handled by the immigrant farm hand. Emerging across the landscape robots are now picking the pockets of farm labor while at the same time picking fruits and vegetables as well.

This does not bode well for those with less skills as we enter a new era in food production. This microcosm manifests the new paradigm where high tech will bring forth a revolution in all aspects of human endeavor. Automation has gained traction faster than a speeding bullet, evolving quickly by replacing mundane tasks done by the less skilled. This is a sign of the times where the unemployable will rot in the fields of despair.  Look for more revolutions to come as the machine replaces manual labor at a frantic pace.
