Like with any colony that doesn't pay. When relationships get under 50% you will get a immigration and import embargo. Meaning no new colonists will arrive and you can't import resources through the mass driver / galactic freight / space elevator /Stargate untill relationship is back at 80% I think.
Like vyryn says if you want to go around this issue, just changed the payroll assistance from your CW. Every colony by default gets 25% compensation of the total amount of salary you pay to your workers. Meaning 75% comes out of your own pocket plus the taxes you owe. The cw leader (owner of the mother colony) can change this percentage to whatever he wants. Dile it down to 0% or raise it to a number in the thousands. There is no limit. Once it's higher than 100% it means you receive more money from the mother colony than you have to pay out of your own pocket on salary.
If you have to pay 100 dollars each cycle, by default you would get 25 dollar's from your mother colony as compensation. Effectively meaning you only pay 75. But you have to pay upfront. The compensation comes later and only when the mother colony is online. Good thing is it works in retrospect. But if you're expansion is very fast and you're counting on the money from your mother colony it can cause problems. Anyways. If you pay 100 dollars worth of salary and 25 taxes you pay it up front. At a later time you get a gift from your mother colony worth 25 dollar's. So effectively you only paid 100 dollars. When the mother coloy raises the assistance to 100% you get full compensation for salary, you would only pay 25 dollars for the taxes. If the mother colony also wants to support you for that they need to set the percentage higher than 100%.
But for this the mother colony has to have enough funds to compensate all those incomes. Since the rate is the same for everyone and they would lose all income from taxes.
