Jack, with respect, either they are not set at 100 manually or you do not have enough of one or more worker groups. You need to double check. If you still reckon its wrong, then you need to email the GM. You could post your country name and world I suppose and someone might have a look for you but you shouldnt rely on that. Give me your country name and I'll see if I can spot something.

Did you turn of the beginners auto-"help" stuff?
If not then it will be changing your hiring rates, salaries and a whole bunch of stuff back to what it thinks is good no matter what you want. The only Automation i keep on is:
" Receive advice at login"
" Move Workers to other Professions."
"Buy ammunition and supplies for the army"
"Reactivate weapons when war is declared and you did not login."
" Automatic placing orders for products that your country needs."

For Corps i only keep, product buy/sell, retain product, and upgrade Q,E.

That might help this employment issue you are having and maybe some other issues you haven't even noticed yet.

"-beginners and general economic protection (i dont knwo what it does...) "<---- will changed a few settings and such in order to "help" your country. it don't help, so i suggest turning it off.
the" -health-care sector
-transportation sector "
is going to auto-buy roads, train tracks and so on. its better to get it done your self. as you can keep track of how many you buy, costs, and workers. as the game will just keep-0n building them,

The workers moved from CEO to state corps because you are paying better then the CEO is.

Jack, unemployment in a particular corp should only increase in increments, off hand I think its 5% (maybe more). So you've given it 12 hrs, or 3 game months which will allow 15% adjustment, or more, but not complete.

Give things longer than that. Everything in the game takes a while, thats half the beauty of it, it's not an instant gratification, shoot 'em up, high speed thing.

Beginners protection will set your trade strats and such for you up to game level 4. Most people would prefer it off. I only would use auto buy for army, auto buy for country, and the login advice if you want. For a secure main you needn't worry about auto reactivate defenses either.

Remember, dont build ANYTHING until you have the workers sorted out.

ok guys, thx for ur answers. i will wait and try a little bit.

but one more question:
"The workers moved from CEO to state corps because you are paying better then the CEO is. "

why they move from ceo instead of reducing the unemployment?

happy new year!

Jack, I just scanned your country for you.

Against advice you started another corp, Tukura hi tech services. The problems you have with hiring are all down to the fact that you dont have enough population to support that number of corps. As simple as that.

What limited available workers you do have will always go to the highest paying corp, or govt. if govt. are paying over 75% of corp salaries. Thats why they move from CEO to state.

You have two options as I see it.
1) Buy a couple of million more people @ 6GC per million.
2) Close two or three of your worst corps. I might be tempted to close the hospital corps myself, but its up to you to look through them and decide.

OK? That's all your problems there solved. Please do post back on what you do and how you get on. It will always help other people who run into the same problems you have.

Good luck, Crafty.

Raise their priorities Jack, dont build more if you havent enough people to staff them.

It seems like you are having a lot of difficulties, but you will get there, keep plugging at it :)
