We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Columbus Dispatch and AP Fail to Cite Minimum Wage in Covering Wendy’s Kiosk Announcement

2nd March 2017

Read it.

A week ago, the Columbus Dispatch reported that Wendy’s, the fast-food chain, announced “plans to install self-ordering kiosks in 1,000 of its stores — about 16 percent of its locations — by the end of the year.” Although company officials observed 18 months ago that such a move would be inevitable if the trend towards laws demanding far-above-market minimum wages continued, both J.D. Malone’s Dispatch story and the Associated Press’s condensed version based on Malone’s work do not mention minimum wages at all.

It’s all about the Narrative, Larry.
