Fast fashion creates misery, and that’s a bad look | Bidisha | Opinion

During lockdown, everyone’s id has been allowed to float untethered. Obsessions, manias, strange desires and perverse fantasies have risen to the surface as the conventions of normal life melted into a free-floating miasma of Netflix and pasta bakes. Judging by the spike in sales of fast fashion, many people across the nation are buying outfits …

The Guardian view on empty supermarket shelves: panic is not the problem | Opinion

Until a couple of weeks ago, the idea of waiting in an Ocado queue of 73,735 shoppers, or of supermarkets rationing milk and baked beans, would have sounded like satire. For too many people in the UK, food scarcity is the norm, with mothers and fathers going hungry to ensure their children are fed. But …

I joined Tesco for a stress-free life but now I’m on the coronavirus frontline | Simon Lord | Opinion

I joined Tesco seven years ago this week, after a disastrous 12 months working as a manager for a small business in which I was bullied by the owner. I deliberately looked for as simple a role as possible where all I had to do was clock in, do my shift, clock out and go …

On the UK’s high streets, coronavirus poses a special kind of threat | Tom Grindrod | Opinion

It’s a strange time to be working at a prominent high-street fashion retailer. For many in the UK, this week has been one of self-isolation: staying away from work, stocking up on essential items, sealing themselves off from the threat of infection. Yet for many others, self-isolation is an economic impossibility – it means being …

After the sleep economy, what’s next to be monetised? Breathing? | Arwa Mahdawi | Opinion

For a moment, I thought 2019 might have been the year the startup bubble finally burst. Lyft and Uber both had disappointing initial public offerings (IPOs). Then WeWork, the office-space startup whose CEO once proudly proclaimed that the company’s multibillion-dollar valuation was “more based on our energy and spirituality than it is on a multiple …
