Note: I have no DLC or Mods.
So, I’m pretty new to the game (72 hours) and I’m struggling with my economy playing as Sardinia Piedmont. I opened a very successful cement factory in Piemonte with 6,000 employees that makes between $10-25 everyday without subsidies. My capitalists are in full swing now and are building a factory every other year. My tariffs are at 0% (that’s the meta I think?) and clergymen are 2% of the population.
Here’s my problem: I’m encouraging clerks in Piedmontian Provence but I’m only getting about 50-70 new clerks per year (the year is 1857 btw), which is awful. I’ve researched the power part of the industry techs as far as I can, and I’ve also researched market structure and business regulations in the commerce tree.
How do I get these farmers to stop being farmers? I’ve read about making RGO efficiency greater, which is what I’ve been doing, but my clerk recruitment isn’t speeding up. Any tips?
Hey everyone I am new to the Denver area, on Colfax by the capital. I would really love to find some work if its available. Anything from an odd or small job to full time employment is on my plate. I love working inside or outside in all weather. I have all the proper safety equipment and am ready to start working yesterday. I have experience in fast food, general contracting, general labor, construction and landscaping. I have a resume available if anyone would like to really take a look and I am available ASAP to start. Thank you.
I'm new to socialism, and I always hear people saying how the capitalist exploits the worker laborer. Can someone explain how exactly the worker is exploited? I'm not denying that this happens; I'm just curious about it.
I’m a 22 year old guy and I’m looking to switch my career. I’m from a small town where if you aren’t working in one of the factories you do construction or something related a few towns over. I fell into this right behind my dad and I’m getting to a point where I dread this existence.
The reason I’m here is I’ve always been the “tech guy” in my family helping with moms fancy smartphone and everyone’s computer problems. I’ve built a handful of PCs as well but I’ve always wanted to dive into software, I can slap parts together but I want to see what makes them work. Same goes for my favorite games, I’m always curious how people can manage to put out stunning titles with a million and one systems and make them work together.
I’m constantly bombarded with ads for boot camps or online courses at universities, I’m just weary of these things being scams or spending the money and getting a surface level understanding without being able to progress. I know google is free but it’s typically more of the same as the ads since I have no clue where to start.
The main question is (without knowing me obviously) would this be a decent field for me to dive into? I have more than enough spare time on my hands and I make enough money to go back to school or sign up for a boot camp. Also where should I start if I decide to self-teach or I don’t go for a degree? And which if any of these boot camps out there are worth taking a look at?
the table has 20 cookies. The CEO takes 19 cookies and says to the laborer, “look out, that immigrant is trying to take your cookie!”
Had these 2 quests right next to each other and thought, "score!". But when I took all my mounted ransackerrs and mounted pillagers back to the landlord, he wouldn't take them.
This was with no mods going either
Hey I'm a 21 year old male who worked as a laborer in construction for a year. Has anyone else have the experience of working in that testosterone filled environment where at the end of everyday your exhausted because you were either digging holes or carrying sheet rock up and down stairs and if you didn't pull your weight you were yelled at by the forman. Some back story on that. I've seen a 50 year old man cry because of how the forman yelled at him. But you continue you grind and you feel pride in your work. Now I'm going back to school to finish my undergrad and go to grad school and I'm working part time at a popular retail construction store. I see how people work there, and I see how most of the time people just talk and don't want to move something that's like 30 pounds. A's as a laborer you wouldn't think twice about walking 100 pounds worth of diesel up 4 flights of stairs. My question is has anyone else made that transition, and if so what did you guys think? I'm asking because today was my first day and I see these people and I'm astounded and it bothers me.
Edit - Added a significant snippet at the end that I had posted in the comments. There is also some confusion as to when the party left Kirtland. I read July 6 or 7, but other sources say July 26.
Edit 2 - I've been unable to find reference to the July 6/7 dates and have struck-through the parts of this post that suggest the incorrect dates.
I've been doing some research, reading old histories of counties in the Northeast US. I came across a mention of Joseph Smith in the History of Delaware County, New York. The statement is rather benign, "There is a stone fence standing on this farm [Malcolm (son) or William (father) McNaught's 202 acre farm in Bovina] built by Joseph Smith, the Mormon prophet."
Intrigued, I started to search for a link between Joseph Smith, Jr. and Bovina, Delware County, New York and found this note from the Bovina Town Historian, Ray LaFever from 2011 recounting a pageant from 1955 celebrating the history of the town.
>Joseph Smith, the leader of the Mormans, once resided in this town and worked as a common day laborer. On the farm of Paul Rabeler there once stood a stone wall which Smith built between the years 1835 and 1840, a wall which perhaps may still be standing there.
There is no pretense in the statement, simply a mention of Joseph Smith as one of "a few of those people who have particularly interested me." Paul Rabeler passed away in 2000, his wife in November 2016. Paul owned the farm, located on Paul Rabeler Rd in Bovina Center, until the mid-80s.
Delware County, New York is also home to Middletown (the same town that is Mormon-famous for the Wood Scrape event with Nathanial Wood's New Israelites movement) though Bovina is almost 90 miles from Middletown.
Of course, the truly curious part of all of this is what Joseph Smith was doing as a day laborer in Bovina? My best guess is that either Joseph stopped in Bovina en route from Kirtland, Ohio to Salem, Massachusetts some time [between 26 July and 6 August](https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/m... keep reading on reddit ➡
Looking to talk about how underpaid we are for intense work and the amount of toxic hazards that we are exposed to without care, proper education or training. At least at my company. Debating if its worth staying or not.
I’ve been a software dev for a couple years. It’s a great deal, but it’s admittedly boring right now.
I have been having this weird desire to do anything else. I just miss being somewhere other than my house and I want to see other people.
My motivation is also at an all time low. It’s tough for me to stay focused on what I have to get done. It also doesn’t help that there is actually very little to do.
I’m just looking for some insight. I am grateful for having a job rn but there is not much going on and my mental health is taking a hit because I’m stuck in my room all day and I have very little to do.
I completed a pre-apprenticeship and became a 1st period apprentice, but got dropped from it after getting 3 citations (1 each month) after not being able to find a job for 3 months. I'm considering going back to school to focus on obtaining a mechanical engineering degree, and as I'm typing this post, I'm already taking classes.
I wouldn't consider myself a dexterous person (in terms of knowing "how to work"); never been a jobsite, except when I was looking for work early in the morning. The only "experience" I have on a job site wasn't exactly construction, it was more like finish work where I was staining these long boards of side-lapping and cutting them to size, butting them into the ceiling with glue. (this was a temp-agency job that lasted for 3 weeks). Assuming I am able to redo a pre-apprenticeship and get back into the trade school, what advice would you give to someone how absolutely knows nothing?
No idea which one could cause this:
