What is the Ministry of Labor in The Sims 4?

If you don't want a specific job for your Sim but still want them to have a job title, you can register with the Ministry of Labor. The Ministry's only purpose in The Sims 4 is to register a job title for a Sim that is not in an official career. Some examples that players often use this feature for are Stay-at-Home Parent, Farmer, Pet Breeder, and Landlord. To register a job, go to your Sim's phone and choose the Career tab. Then, select Register with the Ministry of Labor and enter your self-employment title.
