Every week, new signals warn us of the death of the high street. 2018 saw household names such Toys “R” Us and Maplin go bust, while M&S, Debenhams and New Look closed a significant number of stores. More than 23,000 shops are predicted to disappear in 2019. These shifts are already having a huge impact on workers. How can we ensure a future of good work in the sector?
