    Workers want $15.00 an hour meanwhile panera bread plans to roll out ordering kiosks later this year to test the market

    Burger king, Wendy's and others are also developing robots and applebys will provide tablets on each table to input your order

    I don't like it but it seems inevitable

    if those places paid $15.00 a hour people in some states would be lining up to work there.
    here in AZ alot of jobs only pay $9.50- $11.00 an hour.

    If McDonald's starts paying $15hr expect a Big Mac to cost $10. Fucking dumbfuck uneducated people who think that a fast food job is a career.

    Looking at the people working in the kitchen I'd prefer a robot handling my food.

    Don't care that a CEO gets paid 257x more per hour than their employees on average

    Oh no, I think that's bullshit too. If the company is doing well everyone should get compensated but you can't just start paying $15hr.

    I hate this MEME. All it does is expose that our military is underpaid too. Meanwhile contractors are pulling in 200K a year. :facepalm:

    Actually, the most liberal estimates are a 70 cent increase. The sky wouldn't be falling.

    "Ding, Fries Are Done" would be a far less funny song with a robot behind the counter.

    The end is near for any job opportunity.
