LETTER from CONNIE KRAHAM VELEZ
To the Editor:
For those who have not been to the Cooperstown CVS in the last week or two, there are two new additions now. Not two new employees, but two automated check-out stations.
Whoever enjoys listening to annoying robotic voices overlapping each other will be glad to possibly be able to save a few seconds so that the upper echelons of CVS management and their stockholders can add to their already bloated bottom line.
These machines take job opportunities away from real people who are trying to make an honest living. And, they are showing up with greater frequency at many places where we shop. They serve one main purpose. They replace humans and they do not have to be paid. The only real benefit is to the corporations.
Is enough never enough?
