Sure. You can make $15 an hour at McDonald's, at least in Seattle. You just have to perform better than this machine.
But if you are not more cost effective that that machine, then not only do you not make $15, you do not have a job at all.
That machine is the not so distant replacement for cashiers demanding more and more pay.
A Reddit comment says the cashiers at this McDonald's were replaced by machines.
Comments indicate the store is the company owned McDonald's Innovation Center at 1253 N Schmidt Rd, Romeoville, IL 60446, United States.
Any readers care to check that out?
Math, Not Counting Benefits
For the machine to be cost effective, all it needs to do is cost less than $100,000 a year to buy and maintain.
By the way, it won't just be McDonald's that eliminates cashiers. Expect to see machines like that everywhere. Basic cost-accounting math demands that outcome.
