While the leftist protest movement, “Fight For $15” are demanding minimum wage increases, several fast food chains are busy installing self-serve kiosk machines, reports Breitbart News.

Wendy’s restaurant chain recently announced plans to install kiosks at over 6,000 locations across America by the end of 2016.

In February, McDonalds started rolling out touchscreen kiosks, allowing customers to customize their orders.

Panera Bread, Chili’s Grill & Bar, Carl’s Jr. and Hardees restaurants have all either already started or plan to start installing the machines in their restaurants.

Chili’s Grill & Bar began testing tablets that allow diners to order beverages and desserts and pay their entire bill, free from the struggle of having to flag down a server. An initial 180 tablets in a handful of Chili’s restaurants, soon ballooned into 45,000 tablets across 823 Chili’s restaurants. The restaurant’s executives called it “the largest rollout of tabletop tablets in the U.S.”

Wendy’s CFO told investors that mandatory minimum wage increases will cause his company to pursue other avenues, which will mean fewer jobs for low-skill workers.
