An untrained worker in Imperialism is a citizen who has had no training and is therefore at the basic level of productivity. His evidence of status is the off-white overalls. If he is the only one in the city at the time, he can do no work, because every position within the city requires multiples of two of his type or trained workers.

Such a worker can go into the army in one of a few lowly positions, such as Hussar and Regular.

He can be put through the trade school with the submission of $100 and a vital piece of paper to double his productivity in a single turn and is then called a trained worker.
