Self-serving folks out of jobs

I've been meaning to post about this for a while, but I always forget when I get home from the store.
Have you noticed how many things, including grocery store check-outs are now self-serve? And people love them! And then they complain that companies are laying people off, not hiring, jobs are disappearing....
Just thought I would mention the obvious: if a company can get its clients/customers to work for free, why are they going to pay someone to do that job? I generally try to be helped by an actual person when possible.
Something to think about.
