Getting Rid of Dangerous Jobs
People are conflicted with having robots in such an area where it helped so many people get jobs. Some think that having robots would be innovative for the industry in a good way replacing repetitive and dangerous jobs and opening up more complicated tasks. Others think that this is a bad idea to do because it helps introduce many new people to the working world. What is more important is how people decide what to do with it.
Let’s start with what are the possibilities of having robots in the fast-food world. The first is faster food services. One person who has worked at his Parent’s Fast Food at A’s has an outlook of what kitchen life and the possibility of having a robot in the restaurant. “When your job is to make 400 of the same burger every single day, fast, you realize there is an opportunity to make burgers better,” Vardakostas jokes. Having one or two people do this constantly for a day will be tiring and there is bound to be an accident. Pizza Hut also has been trying out this idea too, But with a twist. They want to prepare pizza on the go. “Pizza Hut unveiled the PIE Pro, a delivery-focused innovation in which a pre-assembled pizza is cooked and sliced within the bed of a Toyota Tundra pickup truck before being dispensed to the customer.”
The Biggest Advantages
The second thing that could be a positive for the Fast food restaurant is better wages. If the robot replaces that job that is repetitive and needs faster production. BOSS Magazines said the positive of having a robot in the restaurant. “Many restaurants dedicate as much as 25 percent of their budget to wages but with automation that cost can be cut to as little as 10 percent. This is one of the biggest advantages for both employees and customers.” Which would be if we adopt machines into restaurants.”QSR Magazine. This ties to the robots making a lot of food and the consistency it does so.
The other thing that is positive about having a machine in Fast food is the benefits of having the same desired results. It is common for a simple human mistake to occur. The fires get too mushy, the burger is too raw or overcooked. But with a machine, you would get a constant with it. It could try the burger and it would be the good juiciness that you liked. QSR made a statement that gives us a little more detail of what is happening in the restaurants right now. “With approximately 900,000 open jobs in the food services industry, according to recent data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, finding and retaining workers—never mind reliable, quality team members—remains an ongoing concern for restaurant operators.” QSR. So restaurants are having some difficulty finding good reliable members in the cooking force, and that is where the robot comes in.
Then what are the negatives of a machine taking over a restaurant? Well for starters, you may have a good-paying job at a fast-food restaurant, but the probability of needing to get a degree first requires money which you might not have. The second is the cost of maintaining a machine and the last people. UPROXX Magazine is skeptical of this idea and pointed out these three issues.
Pros and Cons of Using Robots
It is hard enough to get a good degree these days. Which is why many go to the fast-food restaurant to pay for or try to get it. So when a robot that replaces that jobs people would have to look somewhere else to get easy low pay jobs that they could do. The price for that one person in that restaurant will pay well for him, but the people might not like a robot to replace a job where it has helped so many people. The other thing that might not be desirable is the cost of having one. First, you need to make room for the machine. If a Fast food restaurant like Mc. Donalds is to have a couple of machines then they have to renovate their whole restaurant which would cost them a fortune just to do that. Another thing that would be costly is the machine itself. If it gets damaged from all that grease or it gets too old. The company would need to pay for the repairs that it needs too, which is also costly.
Last of all the people need to be motivated to have machines in restaurants. We are not like China or Japan with a big population with enthusiasm for machines to make things easier. We are quite skeptical about having them in there, and that is where it all starts. If people are not into it. Then it is not possible to fund multiple functioning machines.
The peak of human invention is the robot. Which continues to evolve as we think of ways to improve it. Having them in restaurants now is a possibility which the people need to decide on. Sure they can take the jobs that are dangerous for the worker, could they replace interaction with the human? No. Is it Possible? Yes. People are trying to make machines that could make food faster and easier for the customer. However, It is costly to do so. What is necessary for this is the motivation to have it in the first place.
