With the dipshits in the Culinary union threatening to strike every other week — even though most of their members are unskilled workers who are making triple what they would in other cities — the casino industry is taking a serious look at a workforce that actually works – robots!
Vdara is the latest Las Vegas Casino to put robots to work inside its hotel, putting a pair of three-foot-high robots into service that will deliver amenities including shaving and dental kits, food, coffee, and drinks.
Fetch, and Jett are two Relay robots responsible for delivering snacks, sundries, and even spa products directly to guest suites.
“Fetch, and Jett are a fun and convenient addition to our team at Vdara. Guests enjoy the novelty of having their morning coffee and other items delivered by a robot, which frees up time for the rest of our staff to focus their energy on requests that require a higher level of service,” said Vdara General Manager Mary Giuliano. “We’re committed to creating special experiences for each guest, and I’m certain this will be a memorable one.”
Designed and built by robot developer Savioke, Fetch and Jett are fully autonomous indoor delivery robots that use advanced technology to navigate around people and objects seamlessly. According to t Vdara, the robots can actually “can prioritize multiple requests and wirelessly communicate with the hotel’s systems – even operating the elevators autonomously.”
In 2017, Mandarin Oriental hotel in Las Vegas introduced a customer service robot named ‘Pepper.’ They even gave the robot a title of “Technical Ambassador.”
“ Pepper will provide our guests with the option to receive hotel assistance and information in an exciting and innovative way,” said General Manager, Donald Bowman. “Not only can Pepper handle information requests, but will also serve as a source of entertainment that we hope will provide an enjoyable element of surprise for guests of all ages.”
Inside of Planet Hollywood, a new bar called the Tipsy Robot uses a mechanical arm to mix cocktails that patrons order via tablet computers. The robotic arm can produce up to 120 drinks per hour.
When your workforce turns on you every chance they get, you start looking at ways to ensure guest experiences are not interrupted.
Las Vegas has one of the most belligerent Unions in the country: the Culinary Workers Union Local 226 (CWU). Despite the fact that its members are paid higher than any other food service workers in the country — not to mention the fact that most of its members are here illegally and shouldn’t have jobs to begin with — the Culinary Workers Union holds the city hostage on a regular basis.
Culinary Union Members get:
- A $20,000 0% interest loan to help with a down payment on a new home — a loan that they only have to repay if they sell the home.
- One of the highest hourly wages for food and hospitality service workers in the country at $23 per hour in pay.
- No monthly-premium family health care, with free generic prescription drugs and access to employee-only health clinics.
- Free Training scholarships and schooling.
- Discounted Bus Fair, theme park tickets and show tickets.
- Employer-funded pensions and Retirement Savings Plans.
And did we mention most of these people are illegally working in the country? Yet, they cry on a daily basis while taking work away from actual Nevada citizens and helping pave the way for a robotic workforce.
While replacing the entire Las Vegas workforce with robots may be a way off, the more the culinary union sends out their belligerent mobs of illegal morons to block the entrances to hotels and harass tourists, the more the Casinos are going to start moving towards automation. In fact, according to a study from the University of Redlands, Las Vegas is the U.S. city most at risk for losing jobs to automation. In 20 years they are predicting that 65% of the city’s jobs could be automated.
