Nothing new about reducing labor in stores:
Reader comment on: Walmart Workers

From:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piggly_Wiggly; "Its first outlet opened in 1916 in Memphis, Tennessee, and is notable for having been the first true self-service grocery store, and the originator of various familiar supermarket features such as checkout stands, individual item price marking and shopping carts" So the trend predates all the regs. However conversely Wal-Mart is also providing order groceries and they will pick them and deliver them to your car. (as will other grocery markets) In reality I suspect if you look at the total cost of labor including items like management overhead the effect of the regs is small. After all what is the total cost of advertising a job, selecting candidates for interviewing, interviewing, selecting the hires, onboarding etc.
