So, if I understand correctly : Population pool is the pool of worker left for us to pick from during the week. At the pop report, it all goes back into the main pool to be redistributed as needed.
Any reason why unemployed population don’t follow the same rules? It could way less annoying to have unemployed population be available to employ, and kept in the “pool” of worker to redistribute at report to avoid abuse.
We currently have around 370 settlers unemployed this week on deimos. However, only 66 (or 61 don’t recall by heart) were employable from the pool. This is already almost filled as only 16 are left, not even 2 days in the week, when in fact, over 300 are unemployed!
So simple solution, unemployed worker (maybe 50%? all of them?) should go in the planetary pool of employable workers during the week and follow the same rule as them when it comes to the weekly report and reshuffle.
