Finally, finally, a real American businessman has told the truth about business plans for the future of work in America. Ed Rensi used to be the CEO heading McDonald’s and he undoubtedly has had time to reflect upon the future of work in this nation during his retirement years. He clearly summed up the desired future of work in America by those who run business organizations:
“I was at the National Restaurant Show yesterday and if you look at the robotic devices that are coming into the restaurant industry–it’s cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who is inefficient making $15 an hour bagging french fries.”
WOW. We can finally get rid of those inefficient workers and replace them with robots who don’t get paid, never take a toilet break, and certainly have no interest in things like unions. Oh, one final question about this future?
Who purchases the hamburgers and french fries?
