I went to 5 guys yesterday I get past the entrance that states they are hiring at 17.50 an hour. I walk in and there are 3 giant women waiting to take my order. The grill prep area had 7 people crammed in. No wonder my 2 double hamburgers cost me 19.50 and had cold buns with tiny burger patties.
You think they would put a couple of kiosks out to save labor costs.

It's insane! Wage prices compounded with food prices is ridiculous.

5 guys used to be reasonable back in 2015, but there costs have sky rocketed. I don’t go there anymore. It’s the same story with every restaurant raising wage prices to get workers in then passing that cost to consumers.

I stopped in there about 6 weeks ago & was shocked at how much it cost for one person! I doubt I’ll ever go back.

Every American who's willing to work full time at an honest job deserves to make a wage that allows them to support themselves. I'll gladly pay extra for those delicious Five Guys Burgers (and fries). Especially if the money is going to pay a worker and not some shareholder.

I refuse to look down on somebody because they do menial labor. Not everybody can be a business owner or skilled tradesman. But these people still need to feed their children.

Robots will be doing those jobs soon. I invested in a company that has already put buger flipping and fry cooking robots in some White Castle locations. They also cook wings. Buffalo Wild Wings uses them too. Del Taco, CaliBurger and more.

Agreed. It's coming to all things eventually, too.

First the machines came for agriculture. Then manufacturing. Next is service. Soon it will be white collar work being done by AI systems, when AIs can perform those tasks.

Inflation SUCKS DONKEY BALLS!!!! Shit, the US dollar racket SUCKS DONKEY BALLS. I fucking hate money — I hate the artificial fucking system.
Thank the global system owners, the central banking Ponzi scheme and evil in general.
Now, the “burger flippers,” $17 an hr — how much would YOU do that job for?
