    I'm calling bullshit.

    They would have done the kiosk thing anyway.

    How long does it take to design and develop the kiosks and computer programs? How long to install them nationwide?

    This has been in the works longer than the call for wage increases.

    How do you know? A kid making $8.00 an hour might be cheaper than the infrastructure costs needed to keep kiosks running. What we do know is that companies always look ahead for things (at least the successful ones do) and their concern might be that $15 an hour STILL won't placate the union idiots, and then they want $20 an hour.

    California is also trying to "pioneer" unemployment compensation on an at-will basis in our at-will employment State. Solutions not problems, like right wing.
