The rise of the robots

Stuff reports:

In the hospitality sector, Carl’s Jr chief executive Andy Pudzer has said he wants to try fully automated restaurants, where customers never see a person, in an effort to deal with rising minimum wages. 

“If you’re making labour more expensive, and automation less expensive, this is not rocket science,” he toldBusiness Insider.

“[Machines] are always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there’s never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race discrimination case.”

It is inevitable.  Unions keep insisting on huge increases in the minimum wage, and one day they will wake up and realise they have no members left!
