Learning economics through pictures - beer vending machines

Thanks to SU econ major Courtney Conrad for bringing this to my attention!

This is a beer vending machine found in the stadium of the Minnesota Twins.  The benefits of this for the stadium is that you need fewer worker.  The downside, of course, is that the machines cost money.  

With higher minimum wages and threatened future minimum wage increases across the country, however, these types of machines will become more widespread.
