TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! FAIR WAGE KILLER WENDY'S KIOSKS HIT KANSAS CITY METRO LOCATIONS AND EARN MIXED REVIEWS!!!



The new kiosks hitting the Kansas City area Wendy's stores don't protest, they never go on strike and they don't ask for higher wages.

To wit . . .

WENDY'S IS LEADING THE CHARGE AMONG KANSAS CITY FAST FOOD CHAINS TO ACTIVELY CHAMPION KIOSKS FOLLOWING THE "FIGHT FOR $15" MINIMUM WAGE WAVE OF PROTESTS!!!

Remember that earlier this year Wendy's announced a move to install self-ordering kiosks in 1,000 of its stores - 16% of its locations nationwide.

A social media friend recently offered a terse but accurate review of one kiosk near a JoCo location.

Here's the word:

"I'm at Wendy's where they just installed prepay kiosks inside. You order via touch screen and swipe your card. What little human interaction there was before has now been eliminated."

Read that closely, there's nothing inherently negative in the writing, merely a statement of fact regarding the human component or lack thereof . . . Meanwhile, responses to the local Wendy's move have varied and fall along typical partisan lines.



More interestingly, middle-class or "professional" workers are tempted to think that they're safe from this trend but the fact is that exponentially increasing computing power that has defied predictions and high speed Internet communication now threaten nearly every job with advanced automation and telcom based outsourcing that's much harder for governments to regulate.

Translation: Legal work and so-called white collar jobs are now moving to India at a quicker pace.



And so, as we move toward a Summer that promises more debate over a proposed minimum wage increase . . . Let's consider the tech alternatives that are already threatening Kansas City jobs starting on the low end but increasingly working upward.

You decide . . .

So, fewer angry fast food employees and fewer lawyers?

I don't see the down side.

Trash service for trash food. Do yourself a favor and visit REAL Kansas City local restaurants where the fare and service are much better than this kind of swill.

These only replace one employee per shift.

way to go do-gooders!

now, minority kids will have no chance for a first job.

God bless the young people of all kinds who are working at or near minimum wage at a fast-food place. It is the first step to being a responsable citizen and to a better life.

I do too know how to work. I was the highest grossing cocksucker in all of Memphis not all that many years ago. Then I became blind and couldn't see dick one in front of my face anymore.

One fact you may be forgetting: these robots are made and manufactured in Southeast Asia.

There is another upside to machines taking over human jobs -- the manager doesn't get into a screaming match with them in front of customers. And you can pick your language, I'm hoping.

I like the young people who work at fast-food restaurants and the snarky comments about them are off the mark in most cases.

Finally I have a chance at getting an order correct.

Byron Funkhouser said...

When you walk into Wendy's, there's one person standing there to take your order.

That one worker has been replaced.

Much ado about nothing, just the corporate types playing with technology.

The effects of technology are too much for Byron to comprehend, and it frustrates him.

Sure hope to fuck the Russians or NOBODY ELSE,important has been reading TKC,with the idea that they can gather some great intelligence by just reading,observing how average Americans interact!!

Mother fucker!! They'd walk away shaking their heads and wondering Just how in THE fuck has the US become so rich & A superpower,to boot.

They would have to think ,if this blog reflects any actual indication of how Americans really think,act & get by in life,then we ought to be able to walk straight through these IGNORANT BUFFOONS & conquer them,within a day or two!! MAX LOL. No SHIT,Man.

But then again,there's Trump out on Front Street,everyday, looking & sounding like a terrible joke..By night tweeting his stubby Lil fingers to the bone,sounding like a 7th grade bully,who's ball's haven't dropped .

This blog use to be fun,Tony
You've let the retards,fuck faces,weirdos & kids take over,buddy

Good Luck in your endeavor.

I'm out..Later

Wendys can't even get orders right, its happened more than a few times and they weren't even busy !!!

Get this ya'll,,,,,,

this actually happened about 3 years ago

I went to a Wendys 1 morning and ordered 3 sausage Biscuits,, they were NOT busy at all as I was the only 1 in there at 9am.

I got my Sausage Biscuits went home, opened the sack pulled out the Biscuits or what I thought was going to be Sausage Biscuits and Imagine my Shock !!!!!!!!!!

What I got was 3 Breaded Biscuits with NO MEAT between the Biscuits, None, Zilch, Zero, Zip, Notta, Nothing !!!

All 3 of them were that way,, like that little ol' Italian lady used to say in those 1980's Wendys commercials,,,,,,,

WHERES THE BEEF ????????????????????????????

Why do Virgina black wannabe white boys have to go to the Midwest to post blog entries? Could it be because they are really not in Virginia and from the same mind that created Jackyl da Ripper?

10:32: This is not unique to Wendy's. For the umpteenth time yesterday I shopped at the Sun Fresh in Westport using coupons and the bright young thing checking me out had to call a manager to get approval. Don't these people understand all we want to do is shop and check out with a minimum of hassles? How difficult is it these days for grocery stores to apply coupons to purchases?

And shouldn't that particular store be a tad bit more concerned with people who shoplift or who may be there to rob it than with people who are paying cash and using coupons?

Homebuilders who aren't interested in offering technology integration as part of their business model are now firmly in the minority. This point is proven by research from the CEA's annual "State of the Builder Study," which was compiled in conjunction with the NAHB Research Center.Thesis writing
