You’ve probably seen all the astroturfing paid hacktivists protesting that McDonalds’ workers should be paid $15/hour to flip burgers and take fry orders.
Well, it looks like McDonald’s is finally jumping into the 21 Century with technology that will make their complaints go away.
At McDonald’s, they’ve combined a computerized kiosk with a brand new menu, and it appears to be a big hit around the country:

So, what’s the reason for these changes?
Some people suspect it’s no coincidence these advances at Mickey D’s have corresponded with the protests by SEIU and other unions, along with fast food workers, demanding $15/hour pay.
Apparently a lot of people who are trying these new kiosks out are really liking the idea:
McDonalds has new indoor electronic check-out kiosks, and i’m in love

OMG! OMG! #McDonalds opened a new restaurant on my way to the office that’s tricked out with self-order kiosks & power outlets for laptops

Let’s face it, technology can do the job faster, better and more efficient than someone whining about getting paid $15/hour.
So the unskilled minimum wage protesters are now going to be getting ZERO pay and will be replaced with skilled workers who will be programming the machines and fixing them.
Maybe those unskilled workers should have been getting an education or learning a new skill rather than whining they deserve to be paid more.
Karma is a b*tch.
