In Zeus, as was the case in Pharaoh, only a certain number of people in your city actually do any work. Forum regular RSC carried out a few tests, and came up with the following table showing the percentage of the population who actually work under different circumstances (difficulty level and wage rate):
|Difficulty level||Wage Rate|
|None||Very Low||Low||Normal||High||Very High|
His further comments were:
"As you can see, Mortal is 5% less than Beginner, Hero is 5% less than Mortal, Titan is 3% less than Hero, and Olympian is 2% less than Titan.
I did two tests - 25 Huts (or 200 people) and 50 Townhouses (3000 people). All the worker percents came out to exactly the same "nice" numbers, so I didn't have to round."

And this is what you're paying your workers per year for each wage rate setting:
