I'm getting it consistently now, but wasn't for a little while. Might be that my reputation was too high after doing a quest or two, when previously it was low enough to recruit some. I thought maybe it had to do with the new names for some bandit groups in reforged.
When in doubt, probably a user error, as after raiding a village and plundering it I'm not having any more issues.
