Panera Bread learns about capitalism.

Panera Bread is replacing cashiers with kiosks — and it feels dystopian.

This morning I read this headline and laughed and laughed and laughed. I guess even the most socialist of companies is figuring out they can't survive a 15 dollar minimum wage. Remember Panera's "pay what you want" scheme from a few years ago?

I noticed this trend a little over a year ago while stopping into a Panera late one night. Read : You can take your minimum wage and shove it up your kiosk.  I guess it took a year to get everything nailed down.

Let the fast food workers strike all they want. You are not a skilled labor force. And really we pretty much don't need you. Half the time you get our order wrong anyway.
