I never knew mass unemployment could be so easy.

Re: Amazon Go

Yeah, it says it adds it to your tab as you pick it up. Does that mean I can just stand next to someone and pick up an item so they get charged for it?

And I'm still waiting for the fast food restaurants to put in touch screens you can order from, thereby eliminating the need for cashiers.

They have it already. I used it 23 years ago at an Arby's in Dubai. Worked great! Sheetz gas stations have them for their sandwich shop but that's on the east coast. Two workers filling orders. No cashier. Used it several times no issues.

I suspect it has something to do with mass unemployment. Look around, that is a lot of people out of work even if it is entry level. I believe they will start with one register and slowly implement it over say 10 years.

I know some grocery stores have eliminated their self check out lanes. Not sure if that was because of people scamming them there or not.

Think you are correct. One I go to just got rid of theirs. Nice place they have quite a decent amount of rift raft in there and no formal security. Easy pickings.
