Dems Pushed For Higher Minimum Wage And Now Robots Have The Jobs

The liberal answer to everything is to throw money at it and trust individuals and corporations that continually mismanage their businesses will miraculously change for the better this time.

You may be surprised to know that this system has continued to fail for as long as society has been recording their accounts.

Yet Democrats keep pushing businesses to employ this unsustainable business model. But at some point, we may not be able to come back from it – regardless of whom our President is.

Thanks to Biden, rising inflation has caused companies to think outside the box for survival.

While the method de jour is to increase prices on goods, relying on the consumer to make up the revenue they are losing to the government, some big names have gone a different route.

The Daily Wire reports:

Major fast-food chains like White Castle and Chipotle have started employing restaurant robots as labor shortages continue to impact the industry while the price of food increases in the aftermath of COVID and crippling inflation.”

These productive machines don’t look like The Jetson’s Rosey the Robot, but they are taking care of business grilling burgers, brewing coffee, and welcoming customers, according to a report by The Daily Wire.

The National Restaurant Association released a report showing four out of five operators have been understaffed since the pandemic hit in 2020.

So, it’s not that the robot does the job better- but they can do it at a fraction of the cost helping companies stay afloat.

The question is, when operators get out of the red will they revert back to human employees, with all their insurance needs and human error?

White Castle’s robot is named Flippy and can cook 300 burgers and deep fry potatoes for about $3,000 a month.

The California-based company, Miso Robotics, have placed their AI in over 100 locations thus far and plan on expanding in the future.

Chipotle has employed a one-armed robot (with no witty name as of date) to make tortilla chips for the same price per month as White Castle.

The CEO of Miso, Mike Bell, told CNBC their mission for businesses everywhere:

“The highest value benefit that we bring to a restaurant is not to reduce their expenses, but to allow them to sell more and generate a profit.”

As technology advances and artificial intelligence becomes more prevalent in service industries, we can expect to see a shift in the labor-driven job opportunities.

McDonalds is the biggest name in the fast-food industry and has already launched an automation-based store in Fort-Worth, Texas that’s been successful.

Chris Kempczinski, CEO of McDonald’s, did not respond to questions about plans to change all McDonald’s locations to total automation in the future during an earnings meeting last summer, according to The Daily Wire.

David Henkes, a senior principle at restaurant research firm Technomic, told CNBC automation would lead the food service industry “somewhere at some point,” but that it’s still a “very labor-intensive, labor-driven industry.”

Firms and innovative companies like Technomic thrive on the industry shifting to a futuristic model that employs AI as standard.

With the push for progressive society to incorporate more AI, it’s hard to imagine we’ll be seeing real people sweating to work for a dollar’s pay right next to a machine that has no family to support or bills to pay.

AI has already infiltrated our education system, writing and correcting English papers and more, as Mommy Underground has previously reported.

As liberal politicians push businesses to raise the minimum wage beyond sustainability, companies resort to machines to keep their business afloat.

Despite rants by politicians like AOC who think living in poverty is putting your own IKEA furniture together, real people are being affected in real ways as technology surpasses being an aid to humanity into being a contemporary.

Do you think AI has a place in society and if so – where?
