Don't Use Automated Check-Out Machines at Supermarkets?

Even though this is a working from home blog, I came upon a very interesting blog post online.

The blog post was about automated checkout machines at supermarkets and how they take away from using the cashiers at the supermarket.

I honestly have to say that I am quite torn about this because I can really see both sides of this. Number one I used to be a supermarket cashier myself before I started working at home for myself. And honestly I have to say that I really hated this job. I had to stand on my feet all day, got ruly and rude customers and I hated working 6 days a week with only one day off.

On the plus side, however, it was a steady and regular paycheck!

Now when I shop at the supermarket I used the automatic/self-serve registers because I like bagging my own groceries. But I know that my opinion is only one and I am curious to hear what others have to say about this.

Do the self-serve automatic registers take away from the cashiers that work at the supermarket? What is your opinion of this?
