The goal of this organization is to give a voice to developers, artists, designers, freelancers and others involved in the gaming industry.
With many studios forced to close their doors for now, there are some industrial workers out of work, and more importantly without pay.
This is a problem facing the entire economic world, as debate rages on about what type of economic support should shop workers receive during the COVID-19 shutdown.
Game Workers Unite does not designate any particular company or companies as bad actors in their statement.
