Minimum wage for a robot? $0/hour. Maximum wage? $0/hour.
Eatsa, the mostly automated healthy, fast food bowl shop based in San Francisco, has inspired the CEO of Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s to rethink the traditional workforce—by replacing all humans with robots.
“I want to try it,” CEO Andy Puzder toldBusiness 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.”
The move could help the fast food giant cope with rising minimum wages across the country.
Interesting that Eatsa emerged in the Bay Area where high minimum wages have put the crush on some businesses.
