Wendy's to replace thousands of cashiers with automated kiosks... $15 wage demands lead to accelerating unemployment and social unrest


(NaturalNews) While whiney, over-privileged "safe space" millennials were marching through the streets demanding $15 an hour wages, fast food giants like Wendy's were quietly working on automation innovations to make them obsolete. Now, Wendy's has announced a rollout that would terminate the employment of thousands of cashiers by replacing them with automated kiosks systems.

The first rule of protesting for higher wages is to make sure you never become such a financial burden to your employer that they seek to automate your job out of existence.

Notably, automated kiosk systems don't complain. They work 24/7, never show up late and don't smoke pot in the parking lot then show up to work stoned. They don't hit on other employees, argue with customers or call in sick at the last minute. Even better, employers don't have to pay social security taxes, workers' comp insurance and other wage taxes on robots. For every employee demanding $15 an hour, a company is spending at least $25 an hour in total benefits, taxes and risk.

No wonder Wendy's, McDonald's, Burger King and everybody else is trying to figure out how to get rid of human workers altogether.

Automated kiosks to be rolled out across 6,000 Wendy's restaurants

As reported in Investors.com, "self-service ordering kiosks will be made available across its 6,000-plus restaurants in the second half of the year as minimum wage hikes and a tight labor market push up wages."

These kiosks are so easy to use that even the cashiers who get fired by Wendy's will be able to figure out how to use them. It's all part of the fast food industry's ultimate goal: Render humans obsolete.

And why not? Today's whiney, hyper-privileged youngsters are incapable of recognizing real work. They believe society owes them everything -- including ridiculously high wages for low-value jobs -- and that none of them should ever have to engage in any real work at all. Besides, government benefits are so high for the unemployed that it's almost easier to get yourself fired, collect unemployment and start living off the government without having to lift a finger to support yourself.

The ultimate goal in fast food: Replace ALL human workers with robots

As mandatory minimum wage hikes kick in across economically disastrous states like California, entire industries (like the fast food industry) are accelerating their search for ways to replace minimum wage workers with automated systems. Nearly everything a human worker accomplishes in a fast food setting will soon be taken over by kiosks or robotic systems, and as this happens, minimum wage workers will be booted to the curb.

That's right: Mass unemployment is the next phase of this government-run game of economic roulette. Just as automated systems are taking over low-end jobs, open borders policies are also flooding states like California and Arizona with yet more able workers who are taking the remaining jobs away from everybody else. It's a double squeeze, and it's going to utterly destroy the jobs market for low-wage workers. Stupidly, they believe their way out is to demand higher wages for low-aptitude jobs. But this only ends in unemployment due to an acceleration of business investments in automated systems.

Sadly, public education has so utterly failed to teach basic economics and mathematics that almost no one understands the cause-effect relationship between higher minimum wages and accelerating unemployment. This economic ignorance is amplified by an illiterate leftist media whose finance writers got their economic theory from lunatic Marxist college professors who think that government creates wealth rather than destroying it. In their minds, wealth can be created by decree -- declaring a mandatory minimum wage "by order of the King!" -- and that whatever money is needed to fund such increases will magically appear out of an astral plane or a parallel universe somewhere.

But this isn't how it works at all. In the fast food industry, profit margins are razor thin. Small increases in wages have huge impacts on long-term economic viability for franchise owners. To cover the costs of increased wages, many of these fast food chains will have to raise prices, placing their factory food menu items out of reach of even the poorest wage earners in society.

The future is mass unemployment, rioting, social chaos and popular uprisings

It's not hard to see where this all takes us. As automated systems displace human workers, mass unemployment will sweep the nation. These large numbers of unemployed, angry people with all kinds of free time on their hands will eventually riot in the streets.

Sadly, the system has no use for them anymore. They are, from the point of view of globalists, "useless eaters" who are a net drain on economic resources rather than net contributors. The only real question at that point is, "How will the system get rid of all these people?"

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
