More requests to cut jobs

The number of requests to sack staff made to the CWI job centres reached 3,300 in November, 1,000 more than the same period in 2007, reports Trouw.

‘Most are to do with the economic situation,’said CWI spokesman Frank Bartelds. Until August, some 2,000 applications to sack staff were being made on a monthly basis.
