Walmart employs robots to replace human tasks that people do not "love to do." In order to save on labor costs, they are betting on robots to clean floors, sort inventory and replenish existing products. In their stores, according to The Wall Street Journal Walmart has several tasks. for new robots. Works for floor cleaning come to 1500 stores. (The company claims that floor cleaning was a task before, which could take people two to three hours each day to complete). after Walmart began testing this technology in 2017, they are losing their stock.
All this happens at the expense of human labor. The more robots Walmart employs, the fewer people they need for each job, and the more money it saves through 4,600 stores in the US. Walmart says that, although it's a reduction in work for tasks such as floor cleaning, it hiring employees to focus on the growth of their online grocery business. This move also came after retailers such as Target and Walmart announced a slight increase in salary for shop staff. . This is part of a continuing hostility between two retail giants. Although Walmart was forced to buy Jet.com and install more online presence, Amazon has added physical stores to its e-commerce proposals and began to follow more traditional brands. Only last week Amazon announced a new round of price cuts in Whole Foods stores around green and tropical fruits. The company is also reportedly planning to expand grocery stores in major US cities later this year.
