I have my education dialed in pretty good, and have over a thousand unemployed in each category. There are plenty of jobs open in my corporations, and plenty of each type of worker, and 30k+ of each of the generic low/medium/high workers. And yet I can't get employment to go above the 95.5 to 96% range. What would be the next thing to improve?

Education is around 150, transportation is around 150, health is only around 107. Jobs pay 360%, overall profitability is not so good, with each month now running slightly in the red.

Hiring and production are set at 100% and are not set for the computer to change them.

What should be done next with the economy?

Welfare, welfare, welfare, sounds like. Are your social security settings set to give you 100+? and it will help seriously to raise health. Yep, a low welfare index is about all I can think of that would do what you describe as long as you're sure you dont have any number required for 100% hiring.

I'm not sure what figures you are showing there.

Cutting the pay for corps down to 300 will probably help your econ (or even 250) and setting govt salaries at 230 (I feel safer with just over 75% for those about to say no no no, govt salaries at 225).

Post your pop numbers and welfare and SS details if you need further help with this.

(those figures were from the education priorities screen, and had lined up nicely before it turned away from the fixed width font. They show newly graduated, unemployed and needed for full employment totals in each job. The point being that I have plenty of unemployed in each category - no shortages gumming up the works)

Pop has been steadily and slowly rising for years - goes up a steady 12200 a month, now at 16.78 million.

Social Security has been flatlined at 102% for years.

Corporation welfare index jumps around, but is steadily rising, and is 124 right now.

Everything seems to be going okay, just I wish the employment index could stay above 96%. Right now it is 95.72%.

The weird thing is the four or so corporations that aren't maxed out on employees keeps changing. So I can't trust that any given corporation will keep their contracts, as they all take turns being short of workers.

Ah, ok, these are a few CEO corps I'm now guessing?

If so, what is probably happening is the CEO owner has set their corps hiring to automatic hence the game is sometimes laying workers off depending on the market for the product. If they are your CEO corps or state corps then check you haven't done just that and left hiring/production as automatic.
There's no way you should have under hiring with those workers and such good welfare.

Hope that helps John. Crafty.
