Robotics grow stronger everyday. Technology becomes “smarter” everyday and doubles it’s capacity approximately every two years. The giant multi-national corporations, the owners of our world, are doing their level best to automate as many task as quickly as possible.
Thirty plus years ago it began in earnest with the replacement of a number of human positions on the factory floors. Robots began manufacturing automobiles, processing food, medicine and a great many other task that humans used too perform. We now accept this reality as there is nothing anyone can do about it.
Today, with robots in a number of everyday places and automation replacing humans at every turn, why would fast-food workers believe they are any different? If google and uber are working around the clock to replace cab drivers with driverless cars why wouldn’t McDonalds want to replace the human with a robotic burger flipper, fry-frying robot and kiosk to take the order?
Wendy’s, to be more competitive with McDonalds, just announced the roll out of order taking kiosk in 1,000 locations all across America. McDonalds began rolling out order taking kiosk in 2016, so Wendy’s is attempting to make up for lost time, wages paid and sales lost.
These are just a few examples showing how every human could be replaced with technology. Most people, globally, use some type of automated banking service, email, text message and the like. All of these technologies replace letter carriers, payment processing humans and a wide variety of other, formerly, human performed task.
As a news website, The Daily Coin, we see more and more automated websites coming online everyday. These news sites use an RSS feed and have little to no human interaction. Once the technology is deployed the owner moves to their human based task. The web site does 99% of the work and the human owner simply checks in to ensure the technology is working as programed.
Now we learn how the “Fight for $15” crowd has shot themselves in the foot. Odds are these global burger giants were planning on rolling out the above mentioned programs regardless of people demanding higher wages but it probably stoked the fire to fast-track these programs.
Today we find out how bad it is for the Fight for $15 crowd and the burger flippers can now be replaced with a robot. CaliBurger doesn’t pay for burger flippers, it uses a robot to do the cooking.
A burger-flipping robot has just completed its first day on the job at a restaurant in California, replacing humans at the grill.

And don’t think for a second the robotics developer have achieved their ultimate goal. They haven’t even started. Burger flipping robots is soooo yesterday.
“Though we are starting with the relatively ‘simple’ task of cooking burgers, our proprietary AI software allows our kitchen assistants to be adaptable and therefore can be trained to help with almost any dull, dirty or dangerous task in a commercial kitchen — whether it’s frying chicken, cutting vegetables or final plating.”
Cameras and sensors help Flippy to determine when the burger is fully cooked, before the robot places them on a bun. A human worker then takes over and adds condiments. Source
Unless people begin thinking, and more importantly, doing for themselves and creating the world they wish to prosper a great many more people are going to find themselves as a slave to the system. Universal Basic Income (UBI) is being discussed in back rooms and in open door meetings around the world. If you do a simple web search for “universal basic income” you will find out exactly what is being discussed. UBI would make anyone on the dole nothing more than cannon fodder for the globalist. Step out of line and their world would come crashing down. Say the wrong thing, protest for your human rights or simply have a robot determine the cost of “benefits” is too high and the next thing you know, with the push of a button, a persons financial, economic and social world comes to a grinding halt.
Robotics and automation are beginning to move into areas of our lives that people just 10 years ago couldn’t or wouldn’t see. Today, we had all better be on high alert or the job we thought would never be performed with automation or a robot will be gone with the push of button.
