Wendy’s plans to install self-ordering kiosks in 1,000 of its stores — about 16 percent of its locations — by the end of the year.
Fast food restaurants have provided millions of entry-level jobs for teenagers and young adults, but this is coming to an end, thanks to minimum wage legislation. When a minimum-wage worker can be replaced by a robot, the value of human labor is essentially reduced to zero. ⁃ TN Editor
Looks like Wendy’s found out they don’t need to pay someone $15 an hour to incorrectly enter orders and miscount change. The kiosks don’t protest outside the store, require health insurance, take sick days or sexually assault customers. They also don’t do gross things to your food.
