NEW YORK – It’s always easy to see how unions and progressives don’t know how to run a business. They think they can make a demand and the market will simply respond.

They thought they could force employers to provide health insurance to full-time employees. Employers responded by making them part-time to avoid the regulation.

Now, activists are demanding $15 an hour minimum wage rate. Restaurants – the latest being Panera Bread – are responding by investing in technology.

FirstCoastNews.com reports:

As protesters across the country call for the fast-food chains to raise their wages, a number of companies have begun experimenting with new technology that could significantly reduce the number of restaurant workers in the years to come.

Restaurant industry backers warn that a sharp rise in wages would be counterproductive, increasing the appeal of automation and putting more workers at risk of job loss.

Check out this video provided exclusively to Progressives Today. It shows catering being delivered by Panera employees to minimum wage protesters in Chicago.

Ironically, the protesters are funding the very company that announced it will begin replacing workers with machines!
