I predict more fights at the La sirena auto checkout than at a Mets Yankees gameAnyone who has employed staff in DR knows the complete nightmare it is, with all the taxes and the extra salary, liquidacion, maternity leave, sick leave and so on and so on. A company like Sirena I believe also pays their packers a salary. These automatic check-outs will save two salaries. Yes, some things will be stolen (things are stolen even if you have cashiers by the way) but they will have worked out that it is better business.
In the UK I stayed at an airport hotel where you literally had no interaction with any member of staff. You checked in on a kiosk that printed your key card. You tapped the same key card to get into the breakfast area which was a buffet. All very clean and very efficient, and obviously saved a fortune in staff.
