Panera CEO Backs Minimum Wage Increase, Replaces Cashiers with Touch Screens
It’s easy to call for a minimum wage increase when you have the loot to replace all your cashiers with machines:
Panera Bread CEO Rob Shaich, a Democratic donor and minimum wage supporter, recently announced that he will be replacing cashiers with computers.
Shaich, who donated $35,800 to the Obama Victory Fund, said he wanted the minimum wage raised as long as it applied equally to all…
Fact: : the minimum wage is never enough. : The left will always want more.
If Shaich really cared about equality, he’d pay everyone in his employ the same wage. : Everyone from the janitor to the CEO gets the same.
But you don’t see him doing that, do you?
