How to reduce commuting workers


In my city, it looks like $$-jobs are outnumbered by commuting workers from another city. I assume this means my own $$-workers can't get a job.

How can I fix this?

It doesn't necessarily mean your local workers will be out of jobs, as they usually fill the jobs before commuting outsiders do.

I assume your population detail screen looks similar to my above one. My "Total Jobs" is too high for my available Workers, so "Commuting In" is trying to fill that gap.

Here are your options for fixing:

1) Raise your $$ workers so you get less Commuting In.

2) Reduce $$ jobs

3) Communicate with the other city to tell them to fill their own jobs so their workers don't look to commute to your city.
