automation is on a roll

Back in December ClockTowerTenants warned of the coming touchscreen apocalypse to avoid a $15 minimum wage.

This has already happened in Italy.

Faced with a 15 euro minimum hour, Italian McDonalds have laid off their counter employees and installed automatic touch screens instead.

The screens don’t show up late, they don't steal or require work breaks or medical insurance.

And they never, ever get an order wrong.

And they can link to $pecials based on learning eating habits linked to a creditcard.

When employees demand more than they are worth in the market, corporations will respond without empathy.

They always do.
