Birmingham City Council today said it's received equal pay claims totalling £757 million from women who were paid less than men for doing the same job.
It also revealed that it will be receiving more claims following a court ruling which will allow women who believed they were discriminated against to lodge claims until 2018.
The council doesn't have the money to pay the £757 million in claims and needs to borrow it.
The interest payments will amount to £75 million a year by 2015/16.
Sir Albert Bore, the leader of the city council said they're considering cutting services it doesn't have to provide by law.
The council has to pay these claims - in addition to saving £600 million a year for the next five years.
