I am less and less inclined to purchase or play any games produced by Electronic Arts. If you’re upset by WalMart’s employment practices, well how do you feel about mandatory 7 day per week uncompensated overtime? Refusal of comp time? Permanent crunch time? And on, and on.
More and more Electronic Arts employees are coming out of the woodwork and are blowing the whistle on highly questionable labor practices. And, like any good nerd, taking their complaints online. Here, and here and on and on.
Now they’re facing a lawsuit for violations of California labor law. Even with business happy Conan the Republican as Governor, can attention from the state Attorney General be far behind?
