In 50 Fast Food Restaurants

CBS Sacramento, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:xcenturion, 9/13/2017 3:17:37 PM

As fast food employees across the U.S. continue to protest for higher wages, a California chain restaurant has decided to hire a new staff member that works for free. The competition for the company’s low-wage workers: a burger-flipping robot named “Flippy.” CaliBurger has announced they will be installing the high-tech replacement in 50 of their locations around the world. “Flippy,” the robotic kitchen assistant, was created by a California startup company called Miso Robotics and is expected to roll out in 2018.

This is what progressivism will get you. A place in the unemployment line, and less summer jobs for students. Well done California!

I can´t wait till the minimum wage is so high that the various DMVs around the nation start using robots intead of morons to staff their offices. Doesn´t the goobernment realize that sooner rather than later, they will make cush goobernment jobs unaffordable?

Beats bringing in more H-2B workers or hiring illegals.

If legal Americans are no-longer cost-effective, then we need to think seriously about apprenticeships and training young workers for jobs not suited to automation. Find a way to make good use of our legal youth and turning them into productive workers. Win, win.

$3,000,000/pop doesn´t exactly sound like "working for free".

Even replacing 3 $36,000/year employees, how long will it take to break even?

I can´t speak for other states, but in ND I have been able to renew vehicle registration online for several years. Takes only a couple of minutes and the new tags arrive in the mail a few days later. Now I understand that routine renewals of drivers licenses will mostly be done online. Have not stood in line at the DMV in several years.

Food preparation, at least for fast food, is an ideal candidate for robots. Think of pizza. Each ingredient precisely measured and placed with exact precision. And do risk of some nasty person spitting in your food. Staffing a fast food place could come down to technical managers to make sure the machines are running properly.

Only recently has low cost robotics incorporating human like dexterity and visual recognition with AI been possible. Tens of millions of lower wage jobs are going to disappear faster than anyone realizes. It’s only a matter of time before a small business can order plug and play robotic workers in a box configurable to specific functions and industries. They are going to be expensive, but that $15/hr employee may be actually costing $30/hr after factoring in low productivity, turnover, worker disruption, tardiness, no shows, theft, law suits, holiday pay, work rules, social security and health insurance. If robotic automation takes the place of two workers on two shifts every day, that’s a $350,000/yr

Think about how many agricultural workers were displaced just by the first wave of automation with tractors and harvesters. This same sort of revolution is coming in the low wage labor intensive industries particularly fast food service, food processing plants and migrant farm work. The unskilled or semi-skilled illegal immigrant work force will be decimated.

An absolutely guaranteed result of the push for $15/hour minimum wage. Perfectly predictable and predicted by anyone with an actual grasp of basic economics. Of course, no leftist or most of the folks earning less than $15/hour who were pushing for this is bright enough to grasp it in advance.

Seems overly complex to this engineer. I could design a machine to do it, not nearly as complex and expensive as a robot. Super simple process, shouldn´t be hard to make a machine to do it automatically, not mimicking human motions, just doing what is needed.

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden told an NBC audience Monday that he wouldn’t worry much about a potential 2020 matchup against President Trump because he’s “Middle-class Joe.” A hypothetical election showdown between Mr. Biden, 77, and Mr. Trump was laid before a “Megyn Kelly Today” audience to start the week when the former vice president said blue-collar voters “love” him more than the president. He said that while he is still unsure about future plans, his connection with middle-class voters is not in doubt. (Snip) “I understand the Rust Belt.

On the anniversary of Donald Trump´s victory, many conservatives were delighted watching the outrageous video meltdowns of the leftwing media. They should be afraid rather than amused. The anger and disappointment over Hillary Clinton´s 2016 loss is not only unprecedented, it´s inexplicable. These are supposedly intelligent, educated professionals and yet their anguish has in some cases turned to unbridled hatred towards the voters who dared to think for themselves. We have been labeled deplorable, moronic, racists and despicable even though these so-called failed political prognosticators have no idea who we really are.

A woman on Monday alleged that Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for Senate in Alabama sexually assaulted her when she was a minor. Beverly Young Nelson said Moore groped her and tried to force her to perform oral sex when she was 16 and she worked at a restaurant that Moore frequented. In a statement, Nelson said that Moore attacked her in his car after offering her a ride home. According to Nelson, instead of driving her home, Moore parked in a lot behind the restaurant. "Mr. Moore began groping me, putting his hands on my breasts. I tried fighting him off, while yelling

Chelsea Clinton opted for classic black to take the stage at Glamour magazine´s Women of the Year Live Summit, and when it came to choosing heels to match her outfit, she turned to her favorite pair of damaged nude pumps. The 37-year-old, who was named Glamour Woman of the Year in 2014, donned a simple, yet elegant A-line dress featuring scallop detailing on the bodice and hem for the event that was held at the Brooklyn Museum on Monday. Chelsea accessorized her look with a delicate gold necklace and her favorite patent leather pumps, which looked incredibly torn up after

Monday on CNBC, former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said due to the sexual misconduct accusations leveled against former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, he should step aside in his campaign for the U.S. Senate. Bush said, “This is not a question of innocence or guilt like in a criminal proceeding, this is a question of what’s right and what’s wrong. Acknowledging that you’re dating teenagers when you’re 32-years old as assistant state attorney is wrong. It’s just plain wrong.” He added, “We need to stand for basic principles, and decency has to be one of those.

Republican Sen. Jeff Flake says he would rather see a Democrat win Alabama’s open Senate seat than accused teen groper Roy Moore — and compared the GOP candidate to former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. “If the choice is between Roy Moore and a Democrat, if I were in Alabama I’d vote for the Democrat,” the Arizona senator?, who recently announced he would not seek reelection,? said Monday. “There was a time when Republican senators would go and campaign for a Democrat rather than seat a Republican who would be so repugnant to the party and would diminish the party’s chances

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) said on Friday that if the allegations against Alabama candidate for U.S. Senate Roy Moore are true, he should step aside, and “should be dealt with severely.” But Graham not only hasn’t called for Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez (N.J.), accused of having sex with underage prostitutes, to step aside — he also went to New Jersey on his own dime two weeks ago to testify as a character witness in Menendez’s corruption trial, telling the judge that Menendez is “very honest” and “honorable.” The Washington Post published a story on Thursday quoting a woman named

Texas woman Roslyn Corrigan claims that former President George H.W. Bush groped her when she was just 16 years old. According to Corrigan, the groping occurred in November of 2003 at an event in The Woodlands, Texas. This is the sixth woman to publicly accuse the 41st president of grabbing her butt without consent. Speaking to Time magazine, Corrigan, who is now in her early 30s, said, “My initial action was absolute horror. I was really, really confused. The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything,” she

Sen. Cory Gardner, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said the Senate should vote to expel Roy Moore if the Alabama GOP Senate candidate wins the Dec. 12 election. "I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office," Gardner wrote in a statement. "If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate." ORIGINAL STORY: Senate

The UCLA basketball players arrested for allegedly shoplifting a pair of sunglasses in a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, China have been left behind to face the tender mercies of Chinese justice. (snip) What Chinese justice deserves, and should demand in return for letting off the students with a warning, is a public formal apology from the head of the University of California for failing to prepare the students for their responsibility as representatives of a world-famous university. That would be Janet Napolitano. In the old days before the Chinese Revolution, such an apology would involve the penitent individual kneeling on

On Monday, Keurig CEO Bob Gamgort issued a memorandum to employees denouncing his own company’s Twitter announcement that it had pulled advertising from Sean Hannity’s television program on Fox News. That advertising pullout came in the wake of an astroturfed campaign from Media Matters based on false allegations that Hannity expressed support for child molestation and had attacked sexual assault accusers. The pullout led to a massive backlash on Twitter, where Keurig owners began smashing their machines and announcing that they would boycott the company. Finally, Gamgort responded thusly: (Tweet) Gamgort acknowledged that normally they would “pause” advertising on a

Turns out the purple ride he drives around in is called a Tuk Tuk, an Asian-derived vehicle used for public transit in the Philippines he says. Ja Du is part of a small, but growing community of people who considers themselves transracial. It refers to someone born one race, but identifies with another. Sound weird? Not to them.
