CBC Radio’s Day 6: Games Workers Organize

I joined CBC Radio’s Day 6 this week to talk about the workers’ walkout at video games company Activision Blizzard.

The president of Blizzard Entertainment has stepped down following a lawsuit filed by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing that alleges executives at parent company Activision Blizzard fostered a “frat boy culture” in which women were subject to sexual harassment and unfair work conditions. But for Sarah Jaffe — a reporting fellow at the Type Media Centre and author of Work Won’t Love You Back: How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone — real change requires an entire overhaul of the video games industry.
