Robotization could be considered the future of the manufacturing process. Robots provide endless hours of work in varying working conditions, and require little maintenance. The bottom line with these machines is, you give less – but they give more.
However, a problem could arise if these super-diligent devices begin to take job placements from people who have little, or no, work experience, or qualifications. Minimum wage jobs could easily be replaced with robots for the sake of efficiency and cost cutting. But, where does that lead humanity? There will be better work efficiency for sure, but unemployment rates will go sky-high, and people won't be happy being penniless.
This is what currently is happening with fast food workers in 80 cities, across 30 countries, as they are pushing for a minimum wage of $15 per hour. Mary Kay Henry, the President of the Service Employees International Union, says, “Fast food workers in many other parts of the world face the same corporate policies — low pay, no guaranteed hours and no benefits.”
We don't know how the global protest will end, but introducing robots to the task of flipping burgers could shake up the burger and fries industry. For instance, Momentum Machines is revolutionizing this $70 billion business: The company has created a robot that can make customized hamburgers without help from people. The Momentum Machine robot can complete all restaurant operations, while saving an average of $135 thousand a year in labour costs.
It does give food for thought, doesn't it?
