Why arent all of the workmen working

prison-architect

I have ~15 workmen in my prison, and most of them seem to be standing around doing nothing. I just started a huge fence project and only 1 of them is building the fence. The rest are standing around in storage, deliveries or garbage doing nothing of use. What can I do to make them work on the fence?

I've also seen this when there is a job "stuck" in the queue, such as needing to move an item but the workman cannot find a path to it.

Check your job list for failed jobs and try to clear them.
