Burger Burn

I found this hilarious. All the little Crybabies were mad at the mean old capitalist…

The CEO of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s has visited the fully automated restaurant Eatsa — and it’s given him some ideas on how to deal with rising minimum wages.

Eatsa, In the very heart of Liberalism, San Francisco: http://insidescoopsf.sfgate.com/blog/2015/08/31/fast-food-reinvented-eatsa-a-fully-automated-restaurant-opens-today/

“I want to try it,” CEO Andy Puzder told Business Insider. “We could have a restaurant that’s focused on all-natural products and is much like an Eatsa, where you order on a kiosk, you pay with a credit or debit card, your order pops up, and you never see a person.”

Puzder takes a highly conservative stance when it comes to the minimum wage issue — he’s written two op-eds against it in the Wall Street Journal.

“With government driving up the cost of labor, it’s driving down the number of jobs,” he said. “You’re going to see automation not just in airports and grocery stores, but in restaurants.” Entrepreneurs make their very living by solving problems and liberals demanding outrageous pay for low level work is one that is easily solved these days. “This is the problem with Bernie Sanders, and Hillary Clinton, and progressives who push very hard to raise the minimum wage,” said Puzder. “Does it really help if Sally makes $3 more an hour if Suzie has no job?” Puzder has really warmed to the idea of robots and I have to say, I’m beginning to as well: “They’re always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there’s never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race discrimination case,” said Puzder of swapping employees for machines. Imagine the legal expense saved! Not to mention regulatory compliance. It’s as I have said most of my life… if you want job security, you had better work for yourself. No one will pay you better or work you harder. (RWN)

No one should be shocked that the Carl’s Jr. CEO wants to replace people in his stores. Anyone with the most rudimentary understanding of economics saw this coming, which naturally excludes those supporting the #FightFor15 movement. Bernie Sanders, we’re looking at you…

The Liberals will never see it coming. Their Thought Police/Agenda Uber Alles Filters will leave them totally blind.

But the fact that he’s so blunt about it? I tip my hat to you sir…

“If you’re making labor more expensive, and automation less expensive- this is not rocket science,” Puzder said.

“They’re always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there’s never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race discrimination case,” says Puzder of swapping employees for machines. “Millennials like not seeing people. I’ve been inside restaurants where we’ve installed ordering kiosks… and I’ve actually seen young people waiting in line to use the kiosk where there’s a person standing behind the counter, waiting on nobody.”

Leftists of course gotta leftist…

I guess Carl’s Jr saw what happened to McDonalds, WalMart, and the Gap when it came to a minimum wage hike. Also, I’m assuming this man had a calculator.

Of course, leftists could have read this man’s statements, attempted to understand an evolving economy and readjust their policy proposal. Instead, as they always do, they decide to fight against market forces through the demanding of government coercion. Just like when they fought against “right to work” (see those videos here). Just like when they fought against online media sharing. Just like when they, most recently, and incredibly ironically, oppose the emerging “sharing economy” like Uber and AirB&B (read more about that here).

That’s right. Self-professed socialists are attempting to SHUT DOWN THE SHARING ECONOMY. Let that sink in for a moment.

Why? Because to modern leftists, everything else takes a backseat to them getting theirs, period. It’s why Bernie’s promises of endless, mathematically impossible free sh** are so appealing.

Unenlightened Narcissism and “Entitlement” Greed are a very bad combination.

It didn’t work all that well for the Unions…

“This is the problem with Bernie Sanders, and Hillary Clinton, and progressives who push very hard to raise the minimum wage,” says Puzder. “Does it really help if Sally makes $3 more an hour if Suzie has no job?”

But for more rote tasks like grilling a burger or taking an order, technology may be even more precise than human employees.

“They’re always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there’s never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race discrimination case,” says Puzder of swapping employees for machines.

But Puzder says that a restaurant that’s 100% automated would have one big plus for millennials: no social interaction.

“Millennials like not seeing people,” he says. “I’ve been inside restaurants where we’ve installed ordering kiosks … and I’ve actually seen young people waiting in line to use the kiosk where there’s a person standing behind the counter, waiting on nobody.” (Tea Party.org)

But conservatives are not immune. Listen, the minimum wage absurdity is obvious. But what do you think will happen if you try to punish trade? If you put more tariffs on China, or American manufacturers with manufacturing plants in Mexico? Businesses aren’t going to eat that cost. It will simply be passed on to you. When people demand government-mandated minimum wages that are not in line with market values, or they demand taxes on goods produced offshore to “bring back American jobs,” it is ultimately a tax on you, the consumer. As a general rule, consumers then migrate to where services are cheaper, and the American businesses go under. At which point they’ll promptly demand a bailout to continue the never-ending cycle.  (Crowder)

Detroit anyone? 🙂
