    DS: sounds like a chain of command type worker structure, Id like to chew that for a little while.

    Governors should have the right to request certain land improvements, but I'm not sure about the power to actually make the decisions should be given to them

    Edit: though by my view Daveshack's proposal follows that, but basically expands on it a bit more then I feel neccisary.

    IIRC, this was how it was done in DGIII. And while DGIII was full of controversy, the worker assignments worked out just fine.

    You're right, Noldodan. The Worker situation did work well in DG3. And I do like DS's plan above, with refinement. But it may be a bit late now. Perhaps we can work on it more later.

    I think this can be unwritten and based on the President. The distubution of worker reponsibility can then be a campaign issue rather than a rigid law.

    Mr(or Madame) President, how do you plan to include other elected leaders in your labor plans?.

    Let's let the buck stop with the President.

    I considered is DS, and I think that your method of doing things is actually quite similar to the way the game will turn out to function.

    The domestic/governors will request workers for certain jobs, and the president will assign them based on priority.

    As far as which workers are assigned to which provinces, that is very difficult to do, I think a broad workforce generality is easier to work with.

    Domestic/governors request a worker for such a task----> president assigns them.

    It seems to me that a very minor change to the sentence can create a situation such as this.

    In your situation, do you want the president or the domestic advisor to have ultimate authority over workers? that is the most critical part.

    Well, why have a middle man?

    It seems to me it would be a better idea if the power to decide worker allocation rested solely in the President. We assume that only the governors and MIA want a piece of the worker pie. What if the military needs a road so it can better march of to war? What if the Minsiter of Trade needs a road to establish a connection? Could the science department want more roads instead of mines in order to increase commerce, and by association, research speed?

    I'd rather let the President make decision himself. It'd be the only decision-making power he'd have normally. Plus, it'd give incentive for more people to stop by the chat, so as to advise him on those decisions.

    That argument for the President to be responsible for worker actions is persuasive. I don't think the clock needs to be restarted on the proposed poll, just copy the re-revised text down to the bottom of the thread and proceed to the poll when the 24 hours runs out, unless there is new opposition in the opposite direction.
