Will You Have a McEquation With That Burger?

     Former McDonald Exec warns the chain will buy robots to replace people if the minimum wage in increased. His comments came on FOX:

 “We’ve got unemployment in the black community which is staggering. Young black men over 50 percent unemployment, and we’re talking about a $15 minimum wage?” said (Edward)Rensi, who most recently served as CEO of the restaurant company Famous Dave’s. “It’s nonsense, these are entry-level jobs.”
And we all know  how much people love dealing with robots, right?

Also, Mr. Rensi was paid the corporate equivalent of minimum wage when he last worked, at Famous Dave's:   $477.949
