And just this morning, I was reading a news article about Trump voters small business owners losing business because they couldn't hire enough temporary foreign workers for jobs enough Amurricans won't do:

Devine says it has been years since he could find enough dependable, drug-free American workers for his $12-an-hour jobs mowing and tending landscapes for cemeteries, shopping centers and apartment complexes across Central Kentucky. So for years he has hired 20 seasonal workers, mostly from Guatemala, through the U.S. Labor Department’s H2-B ‘guest worker’ program. Importing these workers for a few months cost him an additional $18,000 in fees and expenses beyond their wages, which must be the same as he pays American workers. But that’s the only way he could serve his customers.

McDonalds is already training us so they can replace their cashiers. Those ordering kiosks and mobile app will be the only way to order at some point.
Yet another reason not to eat at McDonalds.
