Wealth & Jobs

I know that low wealth people work low wealth jobs, medium wealth work medium wealth jobs, and high wealth work high wealth jobs. Currently, my city only has high wealth commercial and high tech industry yet I have over 3K unfilled low wealth jobs. Are things like parks, water pumping station, sewage treatment, or anything like that considered low wealth? I can't imagine that they are because all of those services are operating just fine.

Are any of the buildings saying they need workers? Maybe some high tech industry is low wealth. Could also just be another case of the game's bad numbers, like the thing with freight orders or how my empty city was using 38 MW of power and 31 kgal of water.

Schools, bus stations, police. fire stations, clinics, town dumps, recycling plants, libraries and all basic service providers require low wealth workers.

Electronics factories, refineries, mining and drilling facilities etc. etc. require low wealth workers

High wealth commercial requires medium wealth workers.

Medium and low wealth commercial requires low wealth workers.

Casinos in general require medium to low wealth workers.

There's not much room for high wealth workers. Medium and low wealth workers are always your main workforce.
