Burger-Flipping Robot Taking Over In 50 Restaurants…
As fast food employees across the U.S. continue to protest for higher wages, a California chain restaurant has decided to hire a new staff member that works for free. The competition for the company's low-wage workers: a burger-flipping robot named 'Flippy.'
