Panera already has a restaurant with zero cashiers. Carl’s Jr. is interested. I’ve said it once (on Facebook), and I’ll say it again (here): the minimum wage hike is only causing one thing, and will only cause one further thing, maybe two:
- Violence will increase—committed by workers who are laid off despite stellar performance, and become increasingly disgruntled over the further lack of jobs to be found outside of specialist work.
- The price of goods and services may also rise, thereby changing… pretty much nothing.
Minimum wage is not meant to be livable for entire households; maybe for one super-bare-bones person living on the edge. It is just a foot in the door to get you some work experience; you’re not meant to stay there for life!
Noooooot a good idea. People with social anxiety might like the lack of human interaction, though, but that’s not something to encouraged, either. -_-
