Brussels municipality Molenbeek-Saint-Jean has introduced a tax of €5,600 per self-scanning cash register, as Mayor Catherine Moureaux argues the registers have consequences for the work itself as well as social cohesion, Bruzz reports.

The tax concerns self-scanning registers in supermarkets that allow customers to scan their purchases and make the payment without the help of an employee.

The devices help reduce queues and save time, the introduction of these cash registers also has consequences for the work itself. Moureaux explains that the customer can now do the job that was previously reserved for staff, meaning jobs are disappearing.In addition, she argues that self-scanning cash registers have an impact on social cohesion. “Especially in neighbourhoods where many older people live because there is no contact between customers and employees,” she said.
