While Conservatives continue to build successful small businesses and agricultural businesses that create millions of low-paid jobs that serve as a magnet for tens of millions of immigrants, legal and otherwise, American Liberals are working overtime to turn back the immigration tsunami by campaigning as hard as possible for robotization of various jobs, everything from picking fruit to flipping burgers. 

Of course, Liberals, being complete morons, don't realize what they are campaigning for. They think they are campaigning for something called "minimum wage," which is the raising of cheap labour wages to a relatively high rate, usually around $15 an hour, about double what these people are normally earning, which is still a lot more than they would be getting back home, especially with all the various welfare freebies.

While Liberals imagine this will greatly improve the living standards of the invaders and racial replacers of Americans, the result is quite different. Instead of placidly going along with this, companies are instead incentivised to avoid the soaring wage costs by automating. 

America's "burger industrial complex" is becoming something of a trailblazer in this respect. Already thousands of branches of MacDonalds have replaced counter staff by introducing automated ordering stations in "minimum wage hotspots" like Florida, New York, California, and Chicago. Now burger flippers are next on the chopping block, with a growing number of companies automating the cooking process as well.

A southern California start-up company Miso Robotics has built a robotic "kitchen assistant" called Flippy to take over those duties from $15-an-hour humans. The device uses camera monitors and machine learning to track beef patties as they cook, flip them, and pop them in a bun once they are done. 
Robot's eye view.
"Today our software allows robots to work at a grill, doing some of the nasty and dangerous work that people don't want to do all day," Miso Robotics CEO David Zito told CNBC. "But these systems can be adapted so that robots can work, say, standing in front of a fryer or chopping onions. These are all areas of high turnover, especially for quick service restaurants."
The company, which recently raised $3.1 million in funding, expects to roll out Flippy in the first quarter of 2018. Investors are bullish.
"Like the electronic spreadsheet did for accountants, this will cause the jobs to go elsewhere," Rob Stewart one of the investors told CNBC. 
The food industry is seeing a growing number of companies working on automating the relatively simple and repetitive work involved in food preparation, including pizzas, lattes, cocktails, frozen yogurt, and salads.

Unlike fast food, agricultural businesses don't usually exist in liberal enclaves that demand "minimum wages," but Trump's immigration policy is also putting pressure of on agricultural businesses to change. 

Recently a new apple-picking robot has been under development by a company called Abundant. The robot can spot apples as accurately as a human and pull them down just as gently, depositing them in crates, just like humans.

The company is planning tests of its prototype in Washington this autumn, with a view to launching on the market in 2018. Once these machine are up and running, the effects on the migrant labour force will be "yuge."

The only question is what will happen to all the displaced cheap migrant workers. The obvious answer is that a new piece of technology will be built to deal with them, namely Trump's proposed solar-powered wall.
