Almost 12,000 people in the UK are set to lose their jobs after a raft of firms announced cuts in just 48 hours. Danni speaks to a panel of labour market experts and business leaders, and asks how many more losses are to come?
Restaurants and pubs may be able to open from 4th of July, but they’ll have to adhere to strict social distancing measures. It currently stands at two metres, but there’s a lot of pressure on the government to reduce this to one metre, so that businesses can cater to more people and reboot an industry that’s been badly hit by the coronavirus.
The government is to announce tomorrow what businesses can reopen, a decision is also expected on social distancing. Many businesses, particularly in the hospitality industry, have been pushing for it to be reduced to 1m. Danni considers the plight of those who've missed out on government support. Also, what can commercial tenants do about mounting debt as rent payment looms? And, are people with disabilities excluded from business?
