Technology & The American Worker #5 – Self-Checkout Counters


Have you noticed when shopping, there are less and less cashiers checking out your purchase, and more and more computerized self-check outs? Scan here and scan there and make sure not to lift the bag from the bagging area. Only one person is monitoring four or five self-checkout areas. The  company in one swoop has eliminated several cashiers. The self-service computerized checkout is a major cost savings for the company.


 What benefits?

No sick leave, vacation pay, health insurance, training, uniforms, etc.
