Stacy Summary: Good thing that house prices are rising as those without a job thanks to Shanice can at least eat their house as it were, by extracting equity. Speaking of housing, however, Shanice will never be able to afford a property on that salary . . .
The council said it was cheaper to have a virtual employee, which can be reprogrammed, but libraries campaigners called it “incredibly wasteful” and opposition councillors questioned value for money when the council was cutting jobs.
The council said the hologram initially cost £12,000, which they claim will save £17,000 compared to a human receptionist, but extra will need to be spent on Shanice’s “reprogramming costs”.
