    Automated drive-thru bot will eventually eliminate thousands of jobs

    Michael Cato, the COO of a Hardee’s Franchise in Maryland, says AI-driven drive-thru technology will not be replacing any crew members in their franchise. Here’s the quote, “We have no intention of cutting labor.” When listening to his interview in the Wall Street Journal, he says the technology will help because they are short-staffed. Automated…

    Companies save 40% on labor costs by outsourcing overseas

    This isn’t news. When will people in the United States realize the multitudinous layers of government and government regulations hinder American businesses ability to hire American employees.

Private business can’t compete against an entity that doesn’t have to turn a profit and has the ability to print money at will. High end restaurants might still need a wait staff but places like Cracker Barrel,…

  • Just when you think Sleepy Joe can’t get creepier

    Whispering creepy Sleepy Joe is the creepiest version of him yet. Forget the other stuff about positioning the federal government in competition with employers to find employees. Yes, he’s bragging about the federal government paying people more to stay home than employers can afford to dole out. But… really… forget that. Just listen to this…
