My country, Franks Folly, on White Giant, has experienced major increases in "employees needed for 100% population" in all worker and profession categoris for several game months now, and at the same time a corresponding increase in "unemployed workers" each cycle ... I now have over 4 million unemployed low level workers but it says I only need 2.4 million for 100% -- each cycle my % employed in corporations is going down dramatically. This is true even tho I have adequate workers across all employment calssifications. None of the available workers or execs or managers are being put to work by the game. Anybody else experiencing this predicament? Am I missing something? Frank Stone Franks Folly White Giant

You might check the age of the pop having many retirees will cause this problem. They can also be too old for the profession, but not yet retired. So you can have plenty of unemployed people for a class but not be age appropriate. You have 10 to 20 Back to Work schools and that many Special Clinics for the Disabled and Housewives.
Having corps that are still upgrading will increase the demand on higher level professions and decreased demand on the lower professions and use fewer workers overall.

Thx Hondo. I don't think that can account for this massive shift of employees across every worker category, from low level worker to High Tech Executive. Plus I have deactivated a large defense force in Franks Folly but dont seem to have gotten any additional (extra) low level workers or mid level managers as a result. This appeaers to be a game error as far as I can tell.

Your employed workers took a sharp increase upwards last month, some changes are just slow to adjust. Maybe it has turned around.
You do have 18 corps still upgrading and this will put a higher demand on the higher level professions and release more lower classes back to the unemployed group.
You also have around 20m of your population being educated in schools and another 20m in the retired, disabled or housewives group. Bump up your education index some, 128 is low for a 93m pop country, I see that you have started. If you don't have them yet, you should have 10-20 Back to Work schools and that many Special clinics, you will need more CEO corps for this to help. This will increase your workforce.
Number of Disabled People 3,464,154
Number of Housewives 10,129,820
Number of Retired People 7,282,584

Thx, am working on the education and will try back to work schools ... I found part of the problem was that in the automatic settimgd my % employment got changed from 100% to automatic, I changed it back and that has lowered the unemployed numbers ... I dont see why automatic should have made my workers unemployed, but apparently it did. Frank

because automatic will not always produce or employ at 100% I think

Yes I too am experiencing the same problem.Every day my workers are leaving my corporations.It seemed to have happened overnight and is occurring in both of my countries,each in a different world.I've tried adjusting my Ed priorities and salaries but to no avail.

Your education priorities only add up to 109. Add where you need workers till its 120. Your priority for teachers needs to be at 5 or 6 I think, definately higher than 3 because you are about to run short of them. You have no unemployed high tech executives, a shortage of about 3500 and you are educating 200 per month, that'll be 18 months till your problem is fixed. If you want to raise the priority for teachers to 5, then raise the priority for HTE's to 27 for a few days to speed up the educating of them,that'll get it to 120, however i wouldn't leave it at 27 because having that high of a number is probably not sustainable because it'll short you somewhere else in the future. Also educating too many people too fast will cause you shortages when they retire I think, in the long run you're better off keeping numbers as steady as you can. If you end up with a high level worker shortage you have enough unemployed low level and medium managers to make 50,000 of each of those into high level workers. That ought to fix your problem. Patience and a little examination fixes alot of problems.
