Fast Food Robot Serves 360 Burgers An Hour [VIDEO]
In a world of protesters demanding a $15 an hour minimum wage and a bevy of politicians lining up to give it to them, a company called Momentum Machines may have the final answer to employers who balk at a nearly 100% increase in labor costs.
Who needs employees when you have a team of robots, each of which can make and serve as many as 360 burgers an hour - one burger every ten seconds!
Here's from Momentum's official release:
"The issue of machines and job displacement has been around for centuries and economists generally accept that technology like ours actually causes an increase in employment. The three factors that contribute to this are 1. the company that makes the robots must hire new employees, 2. the restaurant that uses our robots can expand their frontiers of production which requires hiring more people, and 3. the general public saves money on the reduced cost of our burgers. This saved money can then be spent on the rest of the economy."
