Unemployment is the percentage of a nation's citizens who are actively seeking - but not finding - gainful employment. High rates of unemployment can raise the average Working Week by up to 20% and can drop Trade Unionist relations by 21%. In addition, unemployment rates can affect the number of commuters; high unemployment means less commuters while low unemployment means more.

Unemployment can be lowered by implementing Childcare Provisions, Import Tariffs, a national monorail system, rail subsidies, rural development grants, and a space program, increasing military spending, police force, rehabilitation in prisons, road development, science funding, state health services, state schools, and technology grants, and legalizing gambling.

Description Edit
