As the first municipality in Denmark during the financial and economic crisis Kolding Kommune (Kolding Municipality) fires employees in a large number. This means that in 2010 80-90 teachers, 80 employees in elder care, 50 early childhood teachers and youth educators, 30-40 in the technical administration and around 150 in general administration and social administration will have to look for another job. In other words minimum 400 employees. However, the jobcentre in Kolding is positive. Jobcentre Kolding estimates that the redundant employees all can find in the nabour municipalities, since there is a need for teachers and health care and elder care workers. However, it all depends on what the other municipalities themselves decide to do.
