    We are getting robots today even though we have a $7.25 minimum wage
    If they can replace you with automation, they will do it regardless of the wage

    They put in self serve gas pumps even though the minimum wage was $2.85

    Who is going to bag/tray the food?

    Who is going to clean the dining area?

    Who is going to restock the (ATM) machine with change?

    My example was only about eliminating the cashier/order taker. It goes without saying there will still need to be some human employees.
