Industry staff protest working conditions with Twitter storm

UPDATE: IGDA exec Jen MacLean issues statement on #AsAGamesWorker protest

Original story (03/10/2018): Industry workers have taken to Twitter to protest the state of affairs for employees across all disciplines, from indie level up to some of the biggest studios around.

In the wake of mass redundancies last month, both former and present staff at studios like Blizzard, Ubisoft, Telltale, ArenaNet and countless others detailed the litany of ways in which industry workers feel let down by their employers.

Seemingly started by Osama Dorias, a designer at Warner Bros. Montreal, #AsAGamesWorker serves as a laundry list of grievances from employees at all levels of the industry.
