I'm all for profit and technology but really these jobs are essential to many low paid workers.

Personally, I'd rather have my burger made by a machine that doesn't drop stuff on the floor and pick it up and throw it on the burger anyhow. Also, the machine won't spit on your food either intentionally or unintentionally.

Plus no matter where it's invented the Chinese will be the ones to build them for the burger chains. The same minds who want to save on burger flipper wages will want to get their robots on the cheap.

Get used to it.
Driverless cars, pilotless planes,automatic diagnosis and treatment by new medical bots, 3d printing replacing manufactured goods in the home,sex bots. Automated farms,vat grown meat.

All that is going to be left to do is make apps and blogs and share on facebook.

The era of work and capitalism,free enterprise, are going to go away like communism did.

This, pay a manager $15 and hour to run the register and then they get that raise they are demanding from Santa obama. May they will wake up and see all the illegals taking their jobs and try to do something about it. They cant get any jobs because I cant place an order at Carl's Jr. unless I speak spanish.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 53481829


Maybe i shouldn't have used this analogy, as it has obviously distracted from the statement.

The technological singularity will be staved off by socio political economics, for example, if no one is being paid to flip burgers, who will buy the burgers? if no one buys the burgers the flipping machine cannot be afforded to run.

The answer is simple, do away with the supply of burgers, by deleting the demand....ya dig

Those in control of this insane transhumanistic baby had a decision to make, they knew long ago that people will QUICKLY become obsolete/ surplus to requirement, and here we are, the machine is all around us now, their choice is obvious

I've been in business for a long time...minimum wage keeps going up, and then companies leave the US to find the Chinese or Malaysians that will work for a cup of rice/day...but because of Liberals and their unions, the cost for doing business keeps rising, and therefore the cost of living does too...

These machines were thought of the very day the first law was passed for a minimum wage.

Re: HERE’S THE BURGER-FLIPPING ROBOT THAT COULD PUT FAST-FOOD WORKERS OUT OF A JOB
Oh boy, soon even more unemployed for the workers to pay for. See where this is going?

inflation is what drives these low paid workers to seek higher minimum wages. We are in a pickle now, how to reduce the cost of living is IMO the real question.

we all know that a person used to be able to make a 20 go a long ways, now a $20 is like a $5 15 years ago.
I love you.
