As an aside note you can take this too far and ruin things for everyone. I used to have my salary assistance maxed out until someone abused this strategy and drained over $400B from my colony. My colony imploded a little bit because I had left it on idle and now I keep my assistance under 100% to protect myself.
TLDR this is fine in small doses but don't be a greedy jerk.
