If you've ever been to a McDonald's you'll note the mass automation now in the kitchen...only half the people needed as compared to 10 years ago. Not true. Not surprising, since you're "telegraph", but I just thought I would put it in black and white. Not true.They are trying automated ordering stations....you order at a terminal, swipe your card.....and no 'server' is needed..... soon, you'll find half the staff isn't needed. Not true. Not remotely true. They offer far more products than in the past, including a variety of coffees and lattes which require special and custom preparation.The automated kiosks allow for quicker ordering; people don't need to stand in line to order, then stand in line while the order is prepared. According to the company, the kiosks "do not affect" staffing.In addition to delivering a "fresher product than batch cooking," he said, the new system should improve kitchen safety.Koziol said that while the kiosk and kitchen environment will make production more efficient, it should not reduce restaurant staffing.http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2004-03-09/business/04030...More "made up facts" from telegraph, courtesy of wayoutthere medicines and nutteryproducts, inc.
