Has anyone seen that Patriot Act episode (the Netflix show with Hassan Minaj) where they talk about the video game industry? It sounds very much like advertising and they’re finally unionizing.

That was a great episode- it is like advertising for sure but I think we are the “lite” version of the video game community. But hopefully we can follow suit in the future as you are totally right.

Yeah I think most are owned by EA, Sony, Blizzard-Activision, Microsoft. I think it’s pretty similar to Advertising in that respect. I think the big difference is they create a product, we only sell a product. So public perception is much more important and helps the employees.

Today I look at the US flag and lower my gaze in shame - how did the US go so low! Says a naturalized citizen who came to the US on a F-1 student visa, went through the H1-B and Greencard, and believes in the American dream. I can’t wait for November to vote these xenophobes out!

Recruiter gives salary range of 130-145k in initial convo. I say under 155k would be hard, he says “$10k higher, that’s doable.” Healthcare at company sucks - so Now want to ask for 160k. Is that ok?

One of my older clients offered me a contract to hire. They said it will be as you go not “6 months” or “1 year” etc. I like the company and the VP i will be working under. What do you guys think? How much pay would it take for you to do it? (the job is worth $170,000 salary in SF standards but I’ll be working from LA so COL needs to be adjusted)
