If the robots have a union, the negotiations could be anything but simple. What about severance benefits?

It was just heartless

Well, domo arigato to you too, Mr. Robato.

Unemployment person: And what was your last job?
Robot:I was a robot at a robot hotel.
Person: blank stare

Thinking on movies such as I Robot, the laid off robots may get glowing red eyes and return to the hotels that laid them off with a rather peeved attitude.

If they had only made Churi like Johnny Five, you know, with his thrist for knowledge and laser canons....

Robots strike for 'micro brew' thirty weight.

Why do robots even need hotels?
