One of the local supermarket chains (Albertson's) removed all of the self-checks about a year ago. Because of the stealing. People just weren't scanning everything. Supermarkets run really thin margins as it is.

Opposite spectrum, the Super WalMart in town will have 20+ self-checkouts by mid-year, up from the 8 they have now. Why? Because what they lose in theft is less than what they have to pay all of those cashiers. And WalMart can afford the shrink.

When the people of California voted the minimum wage up to $15/hr, what did they expect? I can order McDonald's from an app and schedule when to pick it up.
