Who Is Amanda McCarty and What is Clotheshorse?
Born during the darkest days of the pandemic, Clotheshorse The Podcast, took everyone behind the scenes of Fast Fashion...what REALLY goes on to make us soooo addicted we stop caring about the people who make the clothing.Amanda McCarty, the creator of Clotheshorse has worked retail her whole life. She's worked on the floor, she's worked in the head offices, she's been a consumer like me. Amanda paves a path, both for people to get more conscious about their clothing consumption consumption, but also to get more conscious about working in retail. Retail and wholesale is the largest employment sector in both Canada and the US employing more people than agriculture or manufacturing or healthcare! It's huge. But as you might know, retail is under a huge transformation...some even call it The Retail Apocalypse! By 2030, a mere 7 years from now, there will likely be 1 MILLION fewer jobs in retail than there are now. In fact, Retail may lose it's crown as the largest employment sector.So what to do? How do we transition out of a retail culture into whatever is next (a warehouse culture?!)I asked Amanda and she has some sage advice for people trying to transition out of retail.So who is Amanda McCarty and what is Clotheshorse?Let's go inside and find out.Enjoying the podcast?
