Am cheering Blizz Albany GWA on!
Yeah, gl with that. Unions aren't always a good thing.AB-5 here in California is going to force truck drivers to become employees of a company, and join a union, no longer will they be able to choose to run their own business, and be their own boss.
I've seen so many unions go from being employees vs employer or even (as this one seems) for employees with the employer pretty much on board straight to for the union itself and employees be damned. Lots of teacher's unions work like that. Anecdotal, but my high school had a bunch of hyper trash teachers that the school couldn't do anything about because they had a union behind them. Not saying this is a bad thing, but unions are vulnerable to very much the same kind of corruption that puts employees down at a workplace to begin with.
We support you, QA! Thanks for everything you do, I hope you get what you want!
QA is all about testing video games and playing video games. They need a union for that? Why do minimum wage workers always think they are worth more than they are.
Unions are obsolete. Every problem the unions were created for was taken care of with the adoption of OSHA, labor laws, etc. They served their purpose, but they've become little more than strongarm units that force employers to pay more, more, more even when a company isn't doing so well financially, and whether an individual employee is actually worth that wage or not. I'm 100% on the side of the individual employee...until they decide to unionize. It's a death wish for legitimate companies.
They make it sound like QA of video games is a national security resource or something.The people wishing for the destruction of Blizzard couldn't have asked for better news.
