My citizens are too smart

Specialized industries (forestry, mining, etc) require relatively uneducated workers. Unfortunately, I placed a strong emphasis on education in my city, and over half the population (including children) have university degrees. Not really suitable for doing grunt work.

So if my education system is so top notch, how do I attract the uneducated folk to my fine city so that they can work the mines?


I think you are under the assumption that Highly Educated Workers cannot work the Uneducated jobs.

Over Educated

They indeed will eventually fill whatever jobs are available. At first they may not want to go work there, and the dirty industries may complain when they first go into business that there are no workers, but the Highly Educated will eventually go work there. The industry itself will display that they are “overeducated” — which doesn’t appear to impact its performance any. So feel free to send those university degree children to the mines 😀

Of course, theoretically if they went to work these lower jobs and you had some Highly Educated positions somewhere else, they wouldn’t be available for those jobs. But then again you have no real way to control of who-works-where anyway.
