From start to finish, the entire process takes less than 5 minutes and costs only $6.

Stupid, sloppy writing. The process doesn't cost $6.00, the end product does. How much does the process actually cost? Does the author have words for that any more? Has the newspeak invaded his brain, so that he finds it impossible to actually conceive of the idea of a process cost separate from a menu price?

No, all that matters is that he gets a political point across. This isn't an article. It's a screed. There is no information to be had. We can't make decisions based on this. We can't inform ourselves, better our lives, or enrich our understanding of communist Californian culture. All we are supposed to do is react emotionally.

So I will. Fuck you.

The article isn't there to discuss the economics of robotic adoption, retrofitting, base cost and profit margins. The article is there to showcase that now a robot can not fully create a burger from start to finish without requiring intermediary aid such as that robot 'flippy' which was only introduced around 2016. In other words, people who flip burgers can now fully be replaced. A 'cook' or 'chef' is ultimately going to become a novelty occupation.

My thoughts too. Journalism is absolute crap anymore.

Stupid sloppy writing, about what you'd expect from a filthy leftist "journalist." Their very job is nothing more than to spread their views in an authoritative manner. The lazy uninformed lap this shit up.
