Luxury apparel maker Ralph Lauren will cut 15% of its global workforce by the end of its fiscal year in a company-wide restructuring to lower costs and move more of its business online, it said on Tuesday.

The company had a total workforce of 24,900 as of March end and based on that, the plan could impact more than 3,700 jobs.

The COVID-19 health crisis has hammered demand for high-end handbags, apparel and accessories in retail stores, forcing luxury goods companies to slash costs and slow brick-and-mortar expansion plans.

Fewer holiday jobs seen for 2020 | Business

Workers who count on retail for extra year-end cash may find a tighter job market this year, although some businesses plan to add more staff than last year, a consulting firm says.

Challenger, Gray & Christmas Inc. said 200,000 seasonal jobs have been announced so far this year. But hiring announcements have been slow amid the global coronavirus pandemic.

Retailers last year added 702,000 seasonal staff, up 12.21%from the 625,600 in 2018. And that didn’t include thousands more that transportation and warehousing companies hired, Challenger, Gray & Christmas said in a news release last week.

“The pandemic has thrown typical holiday hiring patterns off,” said Andrew Challenger, a vice president with the firm. “Last year’s strong consumer spending, coupled with low unemployment, led to one of the strongest holiday seasons in recent history.” 

Predicting consumer behavior through the end of the year is difficult, Rick Farrant, spokesman for Northeast Indiana

Sadiq Khan is urging the Government to extend the business rates holiday for another year over fears thousands of jobs could be lost in London and across the country.

After the coronavirus pandemic hit the UK, business rates for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses in England were halted until the new financial year starts in April.

In a joint submission to the Government’s business rates review, the mayor of London has joined with councils in the capital to call for an extension to 2021/22.

Raising concerns that thousands of jobs could be lost, the mayor’s office said this would provide support to businesses who have suffered a drop in footfall due to the coronavirus crisis.

“Businesses across London continue to struggle from the impact of Covid-19,” Mr Khan said.

“If the business rates holiday comes to an end, I worry any employers will
