Don’t people realize that Amazon is putting millions of people out of jobs? And they are hurting the brick and mortar stores and businesses all over the country.
I went to mcdonalds with my granddaughter. I am happy to see entry level and unskilled workers having jobs. But seriously the level of service was horrible, won't even describe it. And if they make $15 an hour, then the skilled cook will rightfully demand $30 and on and on. There goes your Happy Meal.Let it work the way it is supposed to...you earn your way into better paying jobs, all this does is put people out of business, lose jobs and screw the consumer.
So if you mistakenly get overcharged in some capacity, who is that on? Furthermore what would be the process to get it corrected? Maybe I'm pessimistic, but I see a lot of bumps down the road.
So...what's to stop people from picking up 10 articles and only scanning 5 of them? If they are counting on people's honesty, good luck with that.
But. That’s. What’s. Going. To. Happen. This is a boosters dream. Target I believe is considering a model like this and as someone who worked loss prevention for them, I can tell you they’ll loss their shirts lol.
I am surprised that the liberals in Seattle would embrace this at all. What happened to the concern for workers and $15.00 per hour wages ? I guess technology that would eliminate jobs is okay if it makes it easier for them.
I have to say, I’ve been doing this for a long time now at Sam’s Club. They call it “Scan-N-Go”. You open the app, scan items as you put them in your cart, tell the app when you’re done, it charges to the credit card you have on file and you walk out. I love when something I’ve been doing for at least about a year now is suddenly “new and innovative “!
When I shop at Sams Club they also have a scan and go app I use. The one difference is they have a person at the door that scans your phone to finalize your process and can count your items in the cart. Very fast and I like not having to wait in line loading and unloading my items several times. At some point scanners will know if an item leaves the store and then will charge you for it anyway.
I can't be the only one that notices that these people/companies that come up with these grand concepts and ideas that seem to be meant to put people out of work and all. Okay, fine, perhaps other jobs, may or may not come of it, but in the meantime it seems they always never take into account the "darker side" of human nature, and what some of them tend to do without supervision if you get where I'm going with that...
That’s what happens in a free economy.It’s as simple as supply and demand.Americans spend more hours working than most westerners. Who has time to go shopping when you can just order it and have it show up?Sometimes it comes the same day.Brick and Mortar cut the guest service experience to try to manage costs in the shifting market.In doing so, they made us even less inclined to go out to shop.Essentially they eliminated the one big advantage they had.I miss the days of having customer service while shopping.
