Those jobs were done by people with hungry kids and no government paid housing, medial, food stamps, and free obama phone.


Now, those people make more on welfare than the average job pays and they don't want to do those jobs.

Ah yes, the perpetual Hard Workin' Self-Made 'Murrican fantasy... of a population that has neither put in a truly hard day's work or gone hungry a day in their lives because of government programs.

Welp, looks like companies rather have robots do jobs than give into $15 minimal wage hikes, as predicted.

Great to see.

Wal Mart stores are creepy enough as it is. Now they're going to have robots working in them? Gross. I will make sure to avoid Wal Mart.

If I were a betting man I would bet Amazon is hard at work inventing a robot and store front that can keep shelves stocked. That is about the last human only job I can think of at a grocery store.

With some of the terrible service I have either gotten or witnessed at stores, I am delighted robots can be used instead.

My local WalMart already has a cleaning robot. It cleans and mope the floor.

Did you hear what happened to one Walmart customer who used the self-checkout? He was arrested in the parking lot and charged with theft, because the scanner didn't register one item and he didn't realize it. I will never use self-checkout and any store that has nothing else, can count me as an ex-customer.
