I guess less employees are needed as I just discovered and used the self order station inside the McDonald's in Wesley Chapel and it is just something good you need to get use to but very easy to figure out.

They have 3 inside and you get the same item as in a restaurant that will flash and vibrate when your order is ready.

I guess $15.00 per hour is already resulting in less employees while the wages haven't gone up yet to $15.00

Very sad to see more people losing that low income starters job but say thanks to people who advocated for higher wages and got what we expected to happen.

However the item never vibrated but or order was delivered to our table

McDonald's is expensive? You must exclusively eat at home then.

I always cook. But did have some MC D's last nite as someone brought it to me. It was like 10 smackers for 2 qter pounders and large fries. For $10 i could have grilled a steak and them some. I remember in 1975 it would have cost around $3.

Whether you pay employees $5.00 an hour or $15.00 an hour, all fast food chains are moving towards self service. These machines have NOTHING to do with higher pay demands. The few employees left should demand fair wages.

$15 a hour is not fair and does no good for them as it will cause everything to go up.

Good. Because the current minimum wage is definitely not fair.
