Phoenix, Arizona — A McDonald’s restaurant in is scrapping the idea of employing humans to run its new store opening in Phoenix, Arizona and going with robots.
The robots will take orders, collect money, make food, you name and they can do it.
Paul Horner, the stores manager, and only human, told CNN he will be there for customer complaints and to make sure the robots run correctly.
“I’m proud to be a part of this. It’s the first time any store or restaurant will be run entirely be robots. I can’t wait.”
Will this be a good thing for humanity? Some think it is a step in the right direction and the future of fast food. Though critics like Michelle Bernstein disagree.
“Young kids, who can’t get jobs anywhere else rely on getting a job as McDonald’s,” Bernstein told reporters. “But now with the robots running the place, all those children will remain unemployed. It’s just so sad.”
I for one welcome are new burger overlords.
