    That's what I've been trying to tell folks.. Low skilled sweat labor is pretty much dead. Those robot hamburglars are gonna have a ball flirting with the customers during the break.

    But they'll always be jobs TEACHING robots to assemble customized or new menu items.

    We have a MONSTROUS societal shift about to take place... As large and disruptive as the industrial revolution.. And all we want to talk about is how evil rich folks are responsible for taking all the jobs away.. We're being badly misled..

    There's a bigger market here.. It's perfect for the obesity epidemic.. Needs to come in XXXL size and be hyped by a Kardashian.. (Kirsty Ally will do if she doesn't break a hip dancing)...
