Carl’s Jr, known for their tasteless ads AND food, wants to open up a fully-automated restaurant with no human employees because fuck you.
In an interview with with Business Insider, CKE (who owns Hardees and Carl’s Jr) CEO Andy Puzder says that the strategy is meant to combat the inevitable rise in minimum wage at the state and federal level.
When asked about their recent opening of their automated restaurant in Phoenix, McDonald’s basically echoed the same sentiment.
Puzder is not shy when it comes to his stance on raising the minimum wage (he’s made it clear before) but this interview is probably his biggest outward statement on the subject to where he made an effort for a tangible plan to, basically, eliminate his employees.
McRobots are coming and you’re all fucked, kids.
