While I was playing, I noticed that there were some things that didn’t cause effects that I think they should, so as I encounter these, I’m alt tabbing to add to this list. I’ll also add more after the post if I think of any.
Public education funding does not affect popularity with parents
Unemployment rate does not affect popularity with capitalists, in fact, this one should just hit the “everybody” popularity, nobody likes a high unemployment rate.
Junk food tax: having this only affecting youth popularity seems a bit off. Youth aren’t the only people who eat fast food, there are plenty of old people standing outside at 6:30 AM waiting for the place to open at 7. Also I think a lot of heath care workers would like a policy that discourages people from eating junk food, so this should have a positive effect on state employee popularity.
Health food subsidies do not affect any popularity. State employees and parents should like this.
State pension funding does not affect popularity with socialists: come on, this is one of their big things.
Disability benefits does not affect popularity with socialists
CO2 emission does not affect the environment: umm, what?
Welfare fraud department does not affect popularity with the wealthy or capitalists or conservatives.
Equality does not affect popularity with ethnic minorities
Equality does not affect racial tension
Alcohol law does not affect popularity with conservatives
My unemployment is 0, but this is not having a positive impact on immigration. Looking for work is one of the common motives to move.
Crime and violent crime do not affect immigration. I live in Canada, and know a family that moved here from an American inner city specifically because this seemed like a safer place to live and raise a family.
Education does not affect immigration.
Poor, middle and high earnings should affect popularity with poor, middle income and wealthy categories respectively.
Recycling and unemployment. The process doesn’t make itself work, it needs employees.
Income tax and GDP: Although it takes time for the results to show, raising taxes does eventually hurt the economy, and lowering them helps it. So maybe there shouldn’t be a direct line here, but right now altering income tax affects earnings, which only seems to affect car and air travel. It just seems incomplete.
Why does having a strong work safety law have a negative impact on self employed popularity? I could see a negative impact on the wealthy, who are them employers who might see this as getting in the way of productivity.
