Former cashiers need to learn to code, or wait for trillions of jobs to magically appear due to progress as promised by US gov and certain Patnetters. Or, stock up on painkillers and vote for Sanders or Trump..

How is this any different than the self scanning that happens everywhere now?

No cashiers whatsoever needed. I think

That's not gonna happen. People are gonna wanna know why their coupon didn't scan, or why they didn't get 2 for 1, etc. etc.

And no, it won't be automated. Grandma wants to talk to the manager, goddammit, not be told "This coupon does not apply. Error 554. Have a great day, thanks for shopping." by a machine voice.

Cable companies had humans on their lines first, but then they saved money by automating... "press 1 for this..."

True, however, for things that are sold in volume like groceries and sandwiches, rather than purchased once every few years like cable, different dynamic.

Just like it will take generations for people to accept A/V doctor appointments, even for routine checkups.

Not only that, wait for the diverse (TM) crowd swarming in, looting and trashing the store then hop over the cashier gates if any. Shops like these will become the preferred target for Dindu nuffins. No potentially armed cashier or police caller there. Since minor crimes won't be prosecuted anymore in leftoid landia they can probably rinse and repeat even if caught.

Everyone knows that coders & other tech jobs can't be replaced by AI.
