As technology is progressing, the rise in online shopping is growing rapidly, meaning shops are losing customers because people have found an easier way to shop through tablets, laptops and phones and be able to sit at home instead of going out. Online shopping is more frequent which makes high street shops quieter, the less customers the more likely the shop will shut down, this means they’ll be no high street shops and people will be forced to online shop and be no reason to go outside, reducing the need for cashiers, leading to an increase in unemployment. Self-checkouts are also making cashiers unemployed as only 1 cashier is needed and more people use self checkouts for different reasons, this means that the unemployment rate is gradually moving up. Home delivery services are now provided in most popular supermarkets, which is useful to people that can’t get around as easy and for people who work a lot and don’t have the time to fit in weekly shopping, satnavs are used to navigate to a house which is a faster deliver service and another new source of technology. I will have a website for my business which could expand my business, as potential customers can research prices, menus, photos to show what the pub/bar looks like and a map to locate where my business is. Warehouse workers are also becoming unemployed as people use the internet to shop further and further in this generation of technology, which means they don’t need workers to record what they have sold and what they need because they aren’t sending stock to a shop anymore.
