Default McDonalds Self Serve

According to LAist, Mickey Dís is only testing 18 of these worldwide so be prepared to stand in a line behind a bunch of other people who canít wait to try this out.

Also, you can literally customize your burger to include anything you want. You place an order and are given a pager, which tells you that your order is ready and on its way to your table.

Fantastic.

Investing their own money into technology that delivers their product to market at a price the market is willing to pay for their product.

Thank R2D2 the taxpayer no longer has to foot half their payroll just so that they can enjoy a competitive advantage over other food service establishments.

Next up, Walmart. Pay for some of those robot shelf stackers that Amazon uses so that the taxpayer doesn't have to subsidize your employees to be able to work full time for you, ya cheap, American soul sucking muddy funsters.

Freeze benefit levels for the feckless and lazy (perennial welfare folks).
Increase minimum wage $1 per year each year for 5 years.

Shit sorts itself out.

Don't fear progress. Either learn something valuable or be left behind.

I don't see many people protesting to ban cars and bring back horse and buggies.

Oh I agree with that 100%. I wouldn't care if they all closed. Although I do occasionally get one of their breakfast sandwiches. It has been months though.

Cost of order takers going up....so the ROI of investing in automating that process goes up too and whoops, no more human needed.

That's how much of the mandatory minimum wage will work out.

Enjoy

Maybe this will scare the "we want $15 an hour" dip shits into realizing they can easily be replaced.

I asked the IT guy for the local MCD's stores who also rents some storage space from me about the kiosks. He says they are still a few years off but they are testing them in about 40 stores. They cost about 5k each. That would be a huge savings in labor over the course of a year.

Which is really good for the economy.

Hopefully the design and manufacture of the machines is American and the install and maintenance would be by Americans too.

Time to stop propping up the profits of companies by subsidizing their payroll. Let McDonalds pay 100% to serve their products to the community. The true essence of "free market".

Who with an IQ over 50 points goes into Wally World to start with?

Ditto! I'll shamefully admit I did go a few years ago to get a McRib but won't be going back.

The dirty little secret is that 20-30% of the population in developed countries are and forever will be obsolete. This is a perfect example to let the light in on those obsolete people and show them the future.

Wonder if they can program the machines to spit on the food of rude customers?

If a robot was making McDonald's-quality food for me, I'd rather the robot bagged itself up and set itself out with the trash

I like it. Unless you they teach the robots to spit in the food too.
