    I've already seen some, and that was awhile back. Self-checkout stands, automated order stands. I bet if we tried, we could build an AI governed system that could get rid of 90% of these idiots.

    Hmm, maybe I should go look at penny stocks and see who may be coming up with some of it.

    McDonald's corporate could eat the cost of raising wages to $15/hour and not raise the price of food a single penny.

    Food for thought.

    Can't wait.
    You talk about this like it's a bad thing.

    It is, unless you enjoy rampant inflation.

    Might be a delay getting your Big Mac today.

    You don't even need an automated ordering system. Around here mcdonalds had a smart phone app that is gps aware and just submits your order. As often as they get my order wrong, I would rather punch the pictures of food myself.

    Automating food prep should be easy enough too. Payment has been automated for over a decade now.

    The inflation wouldn't be as rampant as you think. Minimum wage hasn't been keeping up with inflation for a couple decades. Raising minimum wage doesn't have to cause inflation at all.

    I'm not down with all of this automation. I prefer some human interaction. I can't stand self check-out at the grocery store. I prefer to deal with a person and it's nice to exchange pleasantries.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.
