    subordinate clause

    Can someone help me with the sentence:

    That will cause lots of problems, for example reducing full-time jobs.

    Doesn't sound correct.

    Should there be instead: .... for example the reduction of full-time jobs

    Re: subordinate clause

    What exactly is 'that' referring to? And the context of the sentence?
    Maybe it could be wrote as a conditional sentence?
