  • 16 is not big deal for that large number

  • Zone more residential and upgrade streets if you haven't already (so they can upgrade and hold even more residents).

  • Also, check traffic, they may not be making it to work, add buses and trains (import more jobs) if you can.

Click on the red triangle and inspect which buildings are closed due to lack of workers. It is most likely that an insufficient number of workers are reaching a very small number of buildings due to traffic.

Most buildings only need ~40% of job capacity to be filled to open up. The "good" spectrum of employment ranges (enormously) from ~40% unemployed workers to ~40% unfilled jobs.

I see a large number of commuting workers. It's generally a bad idea to have extra jobs, as commuting workers are unreliable and buggy. To fix this, encourage your neighboring cities to provide more jobs.

If traffic is the problem, try a flux capacitor.

  • As I mentioned, workers go to work, but sometimes never make it there :) Backtrace the problem or just broadly fix it.
