After Buying Up Studios, Xbox Says It Doesn't Have The Resources To Run Them
  • Microsoft is buying up companies to stockpile IP. Simple as that.

    Then they have a lot of redundant workers so they let them go, leaving the IP in their hands to be filed away for potential lawsuits against infringers.

  • Google lays off hundreds of 'Core' employees, moves some positions to India and Mexico
  • Ceo pay is advertised and used against each other to get top dollar. Lowers like us have out pay hidden so companies can low ball without us knowing. That's what needs to change. It should be law to be advertised pay rate so the lowballers get exposed and no one applies, forcing pay to go up.

  • Capitalists hate competition, especially when it comes to wages
  • My current job, I asked what the pay was, they said 'you tell us what it should pay".

    So I asked what the range was, and they said "thats not how this works, you tell us what you want" so I said a highish number for me at the time. They're like "ok, that works".

    Turns out I make 40% less than all my co workers because I didn't know what the range was commonly for this role. Theor game let me lowball myself. It's completely BS.

  • Google lays off hundreds of 'Core' employees, moves some positions to India and Mexico
  • This always comes down to the fact that labor is competitive. Why pay someone $200k/yeae when someone will do the job for $80k/year? Competition drives the prices of labor down. Maybe there needs to be better regulation for labor competition like corporations enjoy.
