Wendy's Increases Self-Service Kiosks Due To Minimum Wage

Investor's Business Daily is reporting that the Wendy’s restaurant chain is increasing its number of self-service ordering kiosks because of minimum wage hikes.

“Wendy’s said that self-service ordering kiosks will be made available across its 6,000-plus restaurants in the second half of the year as minimum wage hikes and a tight labor market push up wages,” the report says.


It will be up to the franchisees to decide whether or not to deploy the technology.

Wendy’s President Todd Penegor said company-operated stores, only about 10% of the total, are seeing wage inflation of 5% to 6%, driven both by the minimum wage and some by the need to offer a competitive wage “to access good labor.”

Just ask for links to back up the rhetoric from the BS posters

At one time nothing on this board was considered valid unless you could post a link backing up your claims. Otherwise it is just opinion and rhetoric.

So all we need to do is start demanding the integrity we once held everyone on this board to. I have been using this when a BSER responds with lies about Hillary. Most of the time they try to respond with more rhetoric and telling you it doesn't need to be linked. That is when you have them for the phony they are.

If you can't back it up with fact, then it is garbage.

California's RNC delegates not happy with their hour-long commute from Sandusky

No California Love? California's Republican National Convention delegates are "chafing at the cheap seats they're getting for the Republican National Convention in Cleveland," according to CNN.

As previously reported by cleveland.com, the California delegation is staying in Sandusky, about an hour west of downtown Cleveland. And Ronald Reagan's home state is none too pleased.

"We're pretty bitter about that," Harmeet Dhillon, vice chairwoman of the California Republican Party, told CNN. "It sucks to be California, we're like the ugly stepchild. They need us for our cash and our donors, they don't need us for anything else."

He Shupes, he scores: A fun nugget within the CNN story: Matt Shupe, a California GOP operative, will be staying with a friend in Cleveland who is also named Matt Shupe.

The two Shupes connected by doing what everyone did back when Facebook was new (here's looking at you, Andrew Tobias of Greensboro, North Carolina) — by finding people who shared his name and adding them as friends.

"When all this kinda happened I said, 'Hey, I know someone in Cleveland,'" California Shupe said, according to CNN. "So I started talking to him and his wife and they said I can come and stay with them."

Why did Nebraska have a Democratic Primary when the delegates were already committed?

Clinton wins Nebraska primary but gets no delegates

Hillary Clinton won a symbolic victory Tuesday in Nebraska, taking 59 percent of the primary vote and rival Bernie Sanders getting 40 percent.

Democrats in the Cornhusker State held presidential caucuses in March, with Sanders emerging victorious. The two Democratic candidates appeared on the state’s primary ballot on Tuesday, when voters went to the polls to make their choice in the GOP race.


In the March caucuses, Sanders won 57 percent of the vote to Clinton’s 42 percent, taking 15 delegates to Clinton’s 10.

How the Rest of the Democratic Delegate Race Could Unfold

If all superdelegates vote for the candidate with the most pledged delegates, Mrs. Clinton will get to 2,383 delgates.
Clinton

1,705 delegates earned

511 projected

714 super delegates


Sanders

1,413 delegates earned

422 projected

2,383 super delegates needed


At a news conference this week, Mr. Sanders stated that he and Mrs. Clinton are headed to a “contested” convention since she cannot reach a majority of the delegates with pledged delegates alone. He urged superdelegates in states that he has won to vote for him.


Even if all superdelegates go to the winner of their state — as Mr. Sanders proposes — he still won’t earn enough delegates.


Clinton

1,705 delegates earned

511 projected

505 super delegates


Sanders

1,413 delegates

422 projected

209 super delegates


2,383 needed
