(Newser) – By the end of the year, Wendy's plans to have self-service kiosks available in all of its US restaurant locations, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The fast food chain made the decision after New York and California passed legislation that will eventually raise minimum wage to $15 per hour in those states. Wendy's is "wary" about the wage increases, thus the forthcoming kiosks, Investor's Business Daily reports. It will be up to franchise owners whether to actually use the kiosks, but if they are used, human employees could lose their jobs as a result. Wendy's also plans to start offering mobile ordering and mobile payment by the end of the year. (Read more Wendy's stories.)
