A former McDonald's CEO warned that robots will take over staff jobs at the fast food empire - because it's cheaper than employing humans, reports the UK's Mirror.
Ed Rensi has said that buying highly skilled robotics is a cheaper alternative than employing people on minimum wage to work in the company's worldwide restaurants.
He warned that huge job losses are imminent, and commented that it would be 'common sense' to replace humans in the workplace.
Rensi told the Mirror: "I was at the National Restaurant Show yesterday and if you look at the robotic devices that are coming into the restaurant industry.
