Denmark Denmark
The FOA public services union is worried that local authorities are taking on unskilled workers as part of a subsidised employment scheme and then using them to replace existing, skilled and higher paid employees.

The FOA says that the number of subsidised jobs in local government increased to 13,653 in 2009 up from 9128 in 2008 but could rise to 25,000 in 2010 and the union is concerned about the impact on quality of care.
