A robotic revolution is set to happen in the fast food industry if a $15 minimum wage is put into place, according to a former McDonald’s CEO.In a Tuesday interview on Fox Business Network’s ‘Mornings with Maria’, former McDonald’s CEO Ed Rensi warned that an increased minimum wage would foment massive job loss thanks to the relatively low cost of replacing workers with intelligent machines. “It’s cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who’s inefficient making $15 an hour bagging French fries – it’s nonsense and it’s very destructive and it’s inflationary and it’s going to cause a job loss across this country like you’re not going to believe,”Rensi said. Even without a $15 per hour law, Rensi said that he thinks that franchising-model businesses are moving toward automation, since they are dependent upon low-skill workers to grow. “It's just common sense. It’s going to happen whether you like it or not. And the more you push this, it’s going to happen faster,” the former McDonald’s chief said. Many McDonald’s locations already have self-serve kiosks that replace cashiers by allowing customers to order and pay for their food without interacting with a human, and new technologies could automate the actual burger-making process in a similar way. Looks like that push for $15 is going to destroy all the jobs of people who demand $15 an hour. In the short term robots will be expensive for fast food corporations, but in the the long term it will save these companies millions of dollars for not having to pay unskilled workers. The push for $15 is turning into what the alternative media has warned about since the fight for $15 started, and that is that corporations will look to artificial intelligence to replace it's whining workforce. These push for $15 morons need to realize that 30 to 40 percent of working age Americans are unemployed, if anyone forced me to give them more then what they work for I would just hire those unemployed Americans who would be thankful just to receive a paycheck.
