It's the internet. A bunch of people sitting in a quiet room in front of computers with headsets can take orders more efficiently and accurately than a harried worker scrambling around inside the restaurant, trying to do 18 different things at once. Internet lines let them talk to you and input your order from just about anywhere.
And they do NOT outsource these jobs overseas for the simple reason that they are going for accuracy and speed. Workers overseas simply don't understand fast food and, as most of you know, usually have very poor English skills - both of which will destroy efficiency and accuracy.
And it is not the President, any President, who allows this. This is simple economics. The President could try to pass a law that outlaws it but the companies will simply close and reopen in a different country. Then we lose ALL the jobs, not just the low paying ones.
