Livio, an organization that operates in the domiciliary care sector, has announced that it is to cut 150 jobs. The majority of those workers affected are on part-time contracts. The background of the decision to cut jobs is the liberalization of the market for domiciliary care by the Dutch Government and also cuts in the health care budget by the Dutch Government.
