You may have noticed that all of the popular supermarkets in Australia are now selling their products online.
The big four, Woolworths, Coles, Kroger and Coles Superstore, are the big name names in this new world of shopping, but many of the smaller shops, such as Superdry and Sainsbury’s, are struggling to stay afloat.
And as online shopping becomes a trend, many shops are feeling the pinch.
It is no surprise that supermarkets are feeling a bit burnt out after years of running up huge profits.
But the retail industry has a lot of money on the line.
And if it doesn’t deliver on its promise to deliver value to customers, then it will lose money.
This week, the Australian Retail Federation (ARF) is calling for the government to provide a minimum minimum wage of $18 an hour, which would bring the average Australian wage to about $9 an hour.
A study conducted by the Australian Institute of Management found that the average supermarket customer spends around $400 on goods per week.
This includes food and supplies, and is often the cheapest way to buy a product.
While supermarkets have always struggled to deliver on these promises, with some retailers even struggling to keep up with rising demand, a growing number of retailers are starting to see their businesses start to crumble.
Retailers have a lot on their plate these days.
A $18 minimum wage is just one of the many initiatives that the industry is undertaking in an effort to improve its bottom line.
This is in line with the recent announcement by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand that it is to allow stores to increase their wages to $10 an hour by 2021.
This comes as a big relief for the retailers, who are seeing their profits plummet as a result of the new minimum wage.
In the past few years, retail is one of our most lucrative industries.
The retail sector generates around $7.8 billion for the Australian economy, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
With this much revenue, it is easy to see why some retailers are struggling.
But some retailers are finding that the increase in retail wages is not enough to compensate for the fact that many of their customers are not in the stores.
“I think the retail sector is going to be hit by the increase and it’s going to get worse in the next year,” Paul Kelly, chief executive of the Australian National Retailers Association, told The Huffington Report.
Kelly said that while the industry has made progress in the past two decades, the retail workers are not receiving the pay and benefits they are used to.
The average retail worker earns around $24,000 a year, but the minimum wage would only bring that down to $20 an hour for full-time retail workers.
That is a huge number of dollars for a small business, which needs to be able to pay for its staff and pay bills, Kelly said.
And the big supermarkets aren’t the only ones struggling.
The Reserve Bank also announced this week that it would be allowing the Reserve to increase its lending standards.
According to the Reserve, it would allow banks to lend up to $1 billion to retailers and food suppliers over the next five years.
And the RBA says that these measures will increase the availability of credit for small businesses.
Many of the big retailers are also taking steps to make sure their staff are not struggling financially.
They are offering a new ‘pay’ plan to their employees that is designed to reduce stress and increase productivity.
The plan, which will be rolled out over three years, will see employers providing employees with a new range of incentive packages, including paid holiday and a paid sick leave.
However, some retailers believe that they have not been given enough incentives to make up for the shortfall in their profits.
As a result, many retailers are cutting staff, and reducing the size of their stores, which are causing more stress for their customers.
Roughly 80 per cent of Australian households are either in debt or in default on their mortgage, according the Australian Bankers Association.
And it is the supermarkets that are suffering the most.
Despite the fact there are about 12 million people in Australia with a mortgage, the average household owes $27,200.
At Woolworth’s Superdry store, we are seeing a huge reduction in the amount of staff.
One of the biggest problems is that some staff are finding themselves on a ‘pay and quit’ scheme, meaning that they are either forced to work fewer hours, or are forced to sell their products at a loss.
This has been the case for many of Woolworth Superdry’s employees, as well as the staff who were fired last year.
