Pic related about game workers is from DOPE periodical. This is a paper from here in fishandchipsland. It looks like a more anarchist version of the Big Issue. I've been to one of the distro points in London, 56a Crampton Street. It's been there for years. I used to work at the International Press Cuttings Bureau on Walworth Road, nearby. I only lasted six months. But I was talking to one guy there. He said he was planning to only do a few months there, and then go travelling around Europe. But he never did, it was in the 1970s,and he'd been at the Bureau ever since…broken dreams… :-(
The paper can be read online as well as bought from homeless vendors https://dogsection.org/press/dope12

Based and redpilled
I had no idea about this. Hopefully this will give strength to future organizing efforts and strikes in bigger companies.

This is their work in case you're curious:

How are coomers able to strike anyways? You'd think that porn games would be the last place to get unionized.

I'm guessing it's probably because it's a niche within a niche within a niche, so the company is relatively small.
