OCEAN CITY, N.J. - More and more businesses are coming up with new ways to serve customers as they struggle to hire workers. One solution at Island Grill in Ocean City, New Jersey is meals delivered by a robot.

It's a robot that delivers meals from the kitchen to tables, providing the short-handed restaurant with some serving assistance.

The owner says they were short over 60 employees, so the robot wasn’t brought on board to replace anyone, just as a set of extra hands.

The business community is also launching a new push to loosen teen labor laws to help enlarge the pool of potential workers.
