Well I mean, every grocery store I go to there is almost always a self-checkout so... It's very likely the job will be taken over by robots.

I'm a cashier, they are starting to replace a lot of the registers with self check out, and also getting rid of a lot of my co workers.

Online shopping is just becoming a big trend now. So I think cashiers would be likely laid off for that reason.
