  • MEGA Student Speaker Series #10: Jasmine Persephone Jupiter

    Fri, Mar 19, 2021 @ 05:00 PM - 06:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Student Activity


    Are you a student in the games industry and want to learn about unionization? This Friday, March 19 at 5:00 PM PST, Jasmine Persephone Jupiter will be explaining the basics of labor organizing as well as giving a brief overview of the history of the movement for a games union. Jasmine will be presenting alongside Robin Trach, a fellow organizer with Game Workers of Southern California, former head of MEGA, and a representative from Code-CWA (the initiative that recently organized the union at Google!).

    Why is unionization important? If you're looking to work in the games industry, you may already be familiar with the expectations of 100-hour crunch weeks, high turnover, and pay gaps. The unionization effort aims to protect workers in the game industry and push for better working conditions. The Game Workers of Southern California is one such group dedicated to this cause.

    Game Workers of Southern California (GWSC) is a volunteer-based group of game workers and labor organizers in Los Angeles, Orange County, and the greater Southern California region.
