Thread: What should I do about unemployed craftsmen ?

  1. #1

    What should I do about unemployed craftsmen ?

    Yep question is simple how can I lower their unemployment number ?

    I am making railways from time to time will this help ?

    High number of factories means low employement for craftsmen but factories created by ai (I cant build) how can I make factory ?

    Use a national focus to increase factory production, and lower rich taxes to allow Capis to build them.

    You can expand the factory levels for those states that already got one. For the states that don't have factories ... Just let those craftsmen convert to farmers/labourers.

    Only factories can employ craftsmen. Only profitable factories will employ more craftsmen (if not at 100% capacity already).

    You need more factories, or profitable factories. Techs and railroads help in this regard (profitability).

    I would occasionally (Once a game week) look at the unemployment pop up and if there were any large groups (500 - 1000) then i would do something about it but because you get SO many immigrants and people shuffle around so much i usually had it flashing red the entire game.

    You can also subsidise the factories if they are not making any profit. This will help them employ the craftsmen.

    True, forgot about that. But it'll be costly, I can tell you that!

    I wonder if setting migration National Focus to a state that actually contains factories would help? (It would stop people from migrating to middle of nothing and would gather people from middle of nothing?)

    National focus should help, yes. You might want to try set the migration NF to factory state first, though.

    Something to bear in mind: at first it can seem as if you have no control over your economy in LF, but actually you do. The national focus gives you a good amount of push, try and create optimum conditions for capitalists to get what they need to build factories etc. Once you've been playing a while you realise it isn't as out-of-your-hands as it seems.

    If you are playing the demo, I doubt that unemployment is that big of a problem. At least in my game, it was restricted to a few hundred people per province. It may seem overwhelming because of all those red numbers, but it is a small percentage of the total.

    In a real economy, some degree of unemployment is actually healthy because it allows for economic mobility. For instance, a new factory will be able to get workers right away. (It also keeps wages low, heh). It may work like that in Victoria as well.

    The problem I had in my game was that craftsmen and clerks weren't immigrating to the states that had employment for them. I had spent out of my rear end to expand my highly profitable glass factory in Mass. near the beginning of the game, but it spent the rest of the game never more than half-staffed. Meanwhile I had a metric ton of craftsmen and clerks sitting unemployed in places like Georgia and Tennessee, which had zero industry to support them. Encouraging immigration to Massachusetts for a year didn't help.

    Is it a problem that industrial workers are choosing non-industrial states over industrial ones for migration destinations? Or is the whole point that they come from Europe as industrial workers, but want to change occupation (farmers, labourers) in their new life?

    frostynorth: Maybe your factory states have unemployed craftsmen and clerks? IIRC, POPs don't migrate to provinces that have unemployed POPs of their own type. This is possible as factories don't blindly employ everyone.
