Jumping back to calls for increases in minimum wages, we couldn’t help note an interesting story last week on technological developments for the fast food industry – more specifically, the “Alpha Machine” (a burger robot) and the “Burrito Box”!  The inventions, created by Momentum Machines, could revolutionize fast food service – for example, the burger robot can prepare more than 300 burgers per hour, take custom orders and chop up toppings all by itself to provide the freshest burger possible.  And, it isn’t the least bit concerned with the minimum wage at the federal level or any of the states!!!
