  •  You're onto something. (12+ / 0-)

    These self-checkouts are NOT more convenient for customers.  They're a pain in the ass.

    They are part of a general movement among Capitalists to shift work onto customers in order to hire fewer workers and inflate profits.  Self-busing your table at a fast-food joint is the same thing, and increasingly fast-food customers have to sit at a dirty table because there aren't enough employees to even wipe them off.

    On top of that, there is the general understaffing that creates longer checkout lines.

    Both workers and customers are being screwed.

    It's time for a Hire More Workers campaign.  Complain to managers.  Refuse to use those self-checkouts and let someone know why.  Don't bus your own table at fast-food joints and complain to managers about dirty tables.
