Meet “Smart Restaurant”: The Minimum-Wage-Crushing, Burger-Flipping Robot

This is for all those economically illiterate people who think raising the minimum wage is a good idea!

Via Zero Hedge:

With a seemingly endless line of talking-heads willing to ignore essentially every study that has been undertaken with regard the effects of raising the minimum-wage; and propose what is merely populist vote-getting ‘benefits’ – we thought the following burger-flipping robot was a perfect example of unintended consequences for the fast food industry’s workers.

With humans needing to take breaks, have at least 4 weekend days off per month, and demanding ever-increasing minimum-wage for a job that was never meant to provide a ‘living-wage’, Momentum Machines – a San Francisco-based robotics company has unveiled the ‘Smart Restaurants’ machine which is capable of making ~360 ‘customized’ gourmet burgers per hour without the aid of a human.

What exactly does a “Smart Restaurants” machine do? Via Momentum Machine’s Press Release:

“Fast food doesn’t have to have a negative connotation anymore. With our technology, a restaurant can offer gourmet quality burgers at fast food prices. Our alpha machine replaces all of the hamburger line cooks in a restaurant. It does everything employees can do except better.”

It slices toppings like tomatoes and pickles only immediately before it places the slice onto your burger, giving you the freshest burger possible.
It’s more consistent, more sanitary
It offers custom meat grinds for every single customer. Want a patty with 1/3 pork and 2/3 bison ground to order? No problem
One machine can produce ~360 hamburgers per hour.

Furthermore, the “labor savings allow a restaurant to spend approximately twice as much on high quality ingredients and the gourmet cooking techniques make the ingredients taste that much better.”

The issue of machines and job displacement has been around for centuries and economists generally accept that technology like ours actually causes an increase in employment. The three factors that contribute to this are 1. the company that makes the robots must hire new employees, 2. the restaurant that uses our robots can expand their frontiers of production which requires hiring more people, and 3. the general public saves money on the reduced cost of our burgers. This saved money can then be spent on the rest of the economy. We take these issues very seriously so please feel free to tell us how we can help with this transition.

The other main benefit to companies is machines do not require Obamacare! This is the outcome you can expect in industry after industry if you raise the minimum wage, or make the cost of employment too high for employers. What do you think?

You'll still need technicians to keep this robot running and they would like a living wage. And then there's this thought that sometimes we like to pay more money for a quality burger made by human hands.
What we need are American jobs.
We really should legalize prostitution and stand behind those that want to be independent contractors in this field.

So Arial Castro was horny and he had to choose which one he felt like fucking. So he chose one and then he gave her McDonald's. But if she didn't put out she would not get McDonald's.
So we better put out and take the shit pay or we will get robots.
Because Arial Castro is not breaking any laws.

This reminds me of an episode in Shameless.
It's a good show.
Our hero (Fiona) gets a job at a grocery store.
She learns that she needs to give the employer a blow job so she can have this job.
So she stages a sting so she has recorded proof to what he was doing.
So he gives her a job under this blackmail.
So later on we learn that every female in this store has been giving this boss blow jobs every day. Each are taking turns.
So Fiona gets a meeting going at her home. Just the girls.
And they took a vote to get rid of this boss and most voted to continue giving him blow jobs.
Why?
Because this boss allowed them to come in late. He allowed them overtime.
He basically scratches everyone's back and he makes their work experience a pleasant one.
And they were afraid that if they do get this boss fired the next one will be a hard ass.

This is what you expect from Americans,Forbes.

did your other personality type this or did you lift it off of an esl website?

He's the boss. You do exactly what he tells you or you will lose your job and benefits.
You won't fight back because things can get even worse for you.
It took 10 years to finally get up some balls to stand up to Castro.
Because that's America.
Having the balls to fight for what is right.
Forbes think we should be happy for what we have.
And asking for more is selfish and un American.

Having worked in the fast food industry in years past (Sambo's restaraunt in college, and a Pizza Hut), I frankly would welcome the chance to buy from a robotic burger joint. No nose picking, coughing, sneezing, ass scratching, hair shedding three week old braids wearing, once a week bathing dandruff shedding filthy hands touching the food? Win, win, win, so far as I am concerned. Replace a dozen filthy low renters a shift with one trained technician in sanitary gear at 5 times minimum wage? Again, win win win.

Please, open one here.

I agree. It would actually be a good thing. Because you still need people to run it. You still need people to take orders. And you still need people to clean up.
So the more they can ask for a living wage.

Order takers? Not needed. Cashiers? Not needed. One tech for maintenance and sanitation per shift, and one part=time stock worker to place received consumables where needed per day. Labor overhead reduced by a factor of 8-12 per week.

you are unbelievably screwed up. your patriarchal blame the victim mentality when it comes to 2 girls - FOURTEEN and SIXTEEN when they were kidnapped - and a 21 year old, who were abducted, terrorized , chained, sexually abused and tortured, starved, beaten hard enough to miscarry not just once but FIVE times, requiring plastic surgery to reconfigure the damage done by the beatings, forced to live in what amounted to solitary confinement and emotionally abused to stand up to a psychopathic full-grown man who snapped a dog's neck in front of them to make a point.... oh, and let's not forget being forced to bear a child of said psychopath without any medical care at all...

you want them to fucking "stand up for what is right"? how DARE you.... they were incredibly strong just to survive. stronger than either of us, most likely. how DARE you compare their existence to a job with a boss and benefits?

if this is liberal compassion and standing up for what's right, god help us all.

its soo not worth it dude. his stupid will suck every ounce of humor you have right out of you. until he decides not to suck he is a lost cause and trying to hold him responsible for the damage he does to others is like trying to convince a sociopath what they do is wrong. he may be a sociopath, i dont know anymore.

for fucks' sake, this little girl was FOURTEEN - her neck bones have fused together from wearing a collar and chains that kept her neck in an awkward position while her bones were still growing. she has irreversible damage. yeah, let's blame her for not standing upm to a full grown psychopath.



she's a child...not even old enough to hold a goddam job flipping burgers.

Legalize marijuana and tax it like cigarettes. That one act would solve most of our economic and fiscal ills with an entirely new sector of the economy being created and with it jobs galore. The revenues it would create for the federal government would be almost incalculable.

Our problems are big, but they're mostly not that complicated.

Not to mention the savings in the federal budget from savings in law enforcement and incarceration. Lordy.

Colorado is just a guinea pig for now.

We're going to end 2014 with a surplus.
Our Mayor is a Democrat.
