Things Are 'Easy' at Staples ... When Robots do the Work

Quote:
Imagine a team of employees that works 16 hours a day, seven days a week. They never call in sick or show up late, because they never leave the building. They demand no benefits, require no health insurance, and receive no paychecks. They never complain. They spend every waking moment maximizing productivity, and their interactions with coworkers are a precise, choreographed dance.
Sounds like a bunch of robots, huh?
They are, in fact, robots-
Okay, there goes the jobs. Now instead of break rooms its oil rooms.
