Before you vote to raise the minimum wage, meet your new robot barista

Some well-intentioned, but extremely misguided social engineers are determined to mandate annual increases in the minimum wage by amending New Jersey’s state constitution. But there’s something these “living wage” nuts don’t understand. Economics. When robots are cheaper than people, people won’t have jobs.

Move over baristas, here’s a robot that does your job better than you ever could.

The price of automation keeps going down.

And yet the goo-goos want the price of people to keep going up.

At some point the robot offers better value.

My guess is, that point is “now.”
