When it comes to shopping , never enable a business to destroy the job of a human being.

Self-checkout is being deployed all over this country for one Purpose and that is to achieve corporate bottom line. 

 Its sole intent is to replace people with machines that do not ask for pay raises and do not require medical benefits to protect themselves. THEY DON’T EVEN PUT YOUR  PURCHASES IN THE BAG.  “THIS  BECOMES  YOUR JOB!” It’s  a great strategy if they can convince shoppers like you and me that this somehow benefits us. 

 YOU SHOULD DO ONE OF TWO THING TO MAKE THE POINT.  If you are being informed that the self-checkout center is open.

 FIRST: You  request they open another register as you are in a bit of a hurry !                                                   

“IF THIS GETS NO RESULTS, GO TO THE SECOND STEP”.

SECOND : As you pull your shopping cart in front of this JOB KILLING MACHINE, you call to the  OVERSEER  of your work and ask aloud  “I NEED A CASHIER TO PLEASE CHECK ME OUT. I’M IN A BIT OF A HURRY !” 

If the reply is ” you’re on the self-checkout line”. Then you reply, “I’M SORRY BUT I DON’T WORK HERE ! THAT WOULD BE AN EMPLOYEE’S JOB !

IF NO SALES PERSON OFFERS ASSISTANCE , THEN…… YOU……SIMPLY…….LEAVE  YOUR CART WHERE IT IS AND DEPART.

 AS THIS BECOMES  MORE AND MORE A REGULAR  OCCURRENCE IN STORES ACROSS THE NATION, AND THAT SALES ARE BEING LOST AS WELL AS TIME LOST BY EMPLOYEES HAVING TO RESTOCK THE MERCHANDISE  CUSTOMERS HAVE  LEFT BEHIND,  THEN  THEIR PLAN BECOMES A WASTE OF TIME AND SURELY AN INEFFECTIVE TOOL IN THEIR ATTEMPT TO CUT MORE AND MORE EMPLOYEES FROM MAKING A SIMPLE LIVING AS TO ACHIEVE THEIR BOTTOM LINE.

 BIGGER  INCOMES FOR THE  FEW AT THE TOP,  AND LESS FOR THE MANY IN NEED OF A LIVING WAGE, NEAR THE BOTTOM !
