Tech Company Develops Robots to Replace $15 /Hr Workers Can Produce 1 Burger Every 10 Seconds
Gateway Pundit ^ | 07/23/15 | Jim Hoft

On Wednesday Governor Cuomo’s New York Wage Board set a new minimum wage for New York City’s 200,000 fast food workers. City establishments will now be required to offer employees at least $15 per hour by the end of 2018.

The move also makes it cost effective for companies to fire humans and hire robots.

Momentum Machines has developed a robot that can put out one burger every 10 seconds.

They can order and then self pay for that burger through a kiosk.

The service will be excellent!

Looks like it has more personality than the current option.

In Oregon, it’s illegal to pump your own gas.

Every time the minimum wage is increased, unemployment goes up. The minimum wage theory is that it will help young, inexperienced, new-entrants, often minority workers in the labor force to get a “living wage”. Since the dawn of minimum wage laws, every increase has seen young, inexperienced, new-entrants, often minority workers fired when the new wage takes effect. At $15/hr, there are going to be a massive number of workers saying: “My wage was $15/hr when I was fired.” Still, hope springs eternal as these idiots demand a wage that is unsustainable with their current skill sets. Absolutely stupid.

Or they’ll raise taxes on the business so that they can pay the burger flippers $15/hr. to sit home and watch Oprah.

I think that's still the case in NJ, too.

I think it is still illegal to pump your own gas in New Jersey as well.

City of Pittsburgh used to ban it. Allegedly due to “fire hazard concerns”. Had to drop the ban because most Pittsburghers lived no more than 5 min. drive from a neighboring borough that had self-serve.

So the minimum wage will be $15 per hour. Unfortunately, there will be no jobs. Think they’ll learn anything?

Generally I do not like the idea of a machine taking over a persons job, but my exception, a huge one, is in food preparation.

A properly maintained machine should be germ free, people are not.

Cooks coughing, never showering, going to the bathroom and not washing their hands as a few examples makes me wonder if that’s why I occasionally get so sick after eating at a restaurant that I have to immediately seek the bathroom.

I know of two instances where cooks intentionally contaminated food, one where a guy hawked up a herman lugy and spit it on to a hamburger. Another is where an Army cook ejaculated some unpleasantries into the bread dough. All disgustingly nasty. So I often wonder what goes on that I do not know about?

Businesses welcomed the new “minimum wage” (actually a minimum hourly rate). Now they’re trying to get out of it. If they had had any sense, they would have opposed it as something the government has no right to impose.
