The issue is simple yet very annoying. Morale expectations for the job do not change after you downgrade the profession. This happened specifically to Research Assistant profession. Whatever I do, the morale expectations level stays at 12.
Steps to Reproduce
1. Get to high stress (until the message pops up). 2. Try changing the profession. 3. Profit. Nothing changes in terms of expectations.
