I put my country in peaceful mode and dropped from level 2 to 1 due to social security. I'm a bit confused. Do I incease the % that low level workers pay into it. I though that getting more low level workers would incease the index but it has not, I don't understand more workers equals more people paying so why did the index not go up?

All changing the % will do is increase the amount social security pays out. Its based off of low level workers salaries percentage wise. The % is not how much low level workers pay into it. Higher % in turn will increase your welfare index. Giving you happier more productive people. Also making your country more attractive to those migrating people moving into your country.

Okay so I should just increase the percentage?
This is the text it says for the percentage - "Percentage of Low Level Worker Salary" So that to me is taking away money from them just to increase my index which sounds bad
Great name! haha

Yes, increase the % (betwwen 80-90%). This is actually the percent of a Low Level worker's salary that the country pays to the simcitizen receivivg social security. (i.e., Low level worker salary in your country is 10000. If you set the social security rate to 80%, then each of your retired citizens will be paid 8000 from your country's treasury. This money in turn is used by your retired citizens to buy things. Which apparently makes them happy... thus increasing your country's welfare index.)
