How to Deal with the Most Common Issues in Cities Skylines

Cities Skylines not Enough Workers Issue

Sometimes in commercial and industrial zones, you can notice the “not enough workers” icons. This means those districts don’t have enough employees to operate efficiently.

Often this issue is very frustrating because it doesn’t have a clear reason. Sometimes you may have a high unemployment rate while some buildings don’t get the needed number of workers.

Reasons and How to fix:

  • Your people can’t get to these places. Usually, that’s the case for industrial zones outside of the city. The solution is rather simple – add public transportation options such as a bus line. 
  • Your citizens are too educated. If you have a lot of schools and universities then your well-educated people aren’t keen to work at places that don’t require education. They will wait for a while to find a more suitable job though after some time they agree to work there anyway. So you can either wait or create residential areas for workers without good access to higher education.
  • Your population is too small. This may be the case, especially in the earliest stages. You need to mind your expansion speed and build enough residential areas before you build too much of industry and commercial zones
