2000 jobs are going at Manchester City Council as they try to save £110 million pounds.

2000 jobs is about 17 percent of the Council's workforce and say it's because they've got to save £110million this year with all the government spending cuts. The headline figure for the cuts has been given as 8.9 percent, but in reality the scale of the cuts is 25 percent over the next two years. The Council has promised to avoid compulsory redundancies, instead putting together a severance package for staff who take voluntary redundancy or early retirement.
