Robot Janitors, Robot Inventory scanners, not to mention the already huge amount of self-checkout stations.  They also have my favorite, the Mobile App, where you scan as you put items into your shopping cart that monitors money spent, and when finished you can pay on your phone and walk out the door where one of those 15 P/H people that still has a job verifies the purchases with a scanning device.

They say necessity is the mother on invention.  Somehow I don’t think government mandated pay hikes was considered when that expression was created.

Because I like to think, I like to read. I’m into freedom of speech, the freedom of choice. I’m the kind of guy who likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder - “Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of BBQ ribs with the side order of gravy fries?” I want high cholesterol.
