>>3750 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
>>3749 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: https://vndb.org/p10375
>>3749 How are coomers able to strike anyways? You'd think that porn games would be the last place to get unionized.
>>7466 I'm guessing it's probably because it's a niche within a niche within a niche, so the company is relatively small.
