    Who could've predicted this? Oh that's right, everybody. :rofl:



    Wendy's says self-service ordering kiosks will be made available across its 6,000 restaurants in the second half of the year.

    The move comes as minimum wage hikes push up wages.

    It will be up to franchisees whether to deploy the technology.

    McDonald's has already been testing self-service kiosks.

    How efficient are these things?

    It's going to mess up my whole "fast food experience" if the stuff in my bag isn't completely different from what I ordered.

    Will the machine always give you extra pickles and onions when you order no pickles or onions?

    Clearly. Some people have to see their ideology validated by every news event.

    Wegmans is supposedly a very good employer, don't hear much about Tops. Wegmans still manages to be loaded with employees.

    Costco pays a living wage with full benefits and the place is teeming with employees. Stock is doing well too

    It's not so much my ideology as much as much I know someone who owns a McDonalds and should they attempt to raise the min wage to $15 in Pa he said he will have full kiosk ordering on line before the wage hike is implemented.

    Alright there cunty?
