Walmart appoints robots to replace the human tasks people do not "love to do". its shops, as reported by The Wall Street Journal .
Walmart has several jobs for the new robots. Robot floor cleaning machines come up to 1500 stores. (The company claims that cleaning the floor was a task that can take a worker from two to three hours each day to finish). stocks run out after Walmart initially started testing this technology in 2017
All this comes at the cost of human labor. The more robots hire Walmart, the fewer people need it for each task, and the more money it saves in its 4,600 stores in the United States. Walmart says that although it reduces the workforce for floor cleaning tasks, employs employees to focus on expanding their online grocery business. This move comes as retail companies such as Target and Walmart have announced slight wage increases for shopkeepers. This is part of a long feud between the two giants at retail. While Walmart was forced to acquire Jet.com and establish more presence on the web, Amazon has added physical stores to its e-commerce offers and has begun to follow books with more traditional brands. Just last week, Amazon announced a new round of price cuts in Whole Foods stores around green and tropical fruit. The company also plans to expand its grocery stores in major US cities later this year.
