    does not mean that people don't WANT to still go to human tellers.

    The banks have forced us to use the ATMs and fired the human employees to save money on the bottom line.

    Sure, they are a convenience if you just want to pull money out of an account, but it's difficult to use one for multiple complicated transactions or various kinds of accounts. And some people just want a real, live person to hand their money to -- not some faceless machine that might eat their deposit and give no proof that the transaction was properly recorded.

      mean that only Executives and Stock owners should reap the benefit of increased productivity.

      Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?
