Some Scary Shit
Scrapped of /. is a Story by the wife of an Electronics Arts software engineer. She lays bare the abhorrent working conditions that the Video game giant levels on its employees, included 85+ hour work weeks with-out the legally mandated compensation in the form on comp-time or OT pay. Stories like this make me sick. The video game industry is one of the biggest money-makers in the world, and, like all other aspects of the entertainment industry, has built its moguls bank-rolls on the broken backs of its workers. Why the fuck is it OK for these modern-day robber barons to regularly rape its workers to fill the company coffers? Why is the entertainment industry as a whole so notorious for exploitative working practices?

UPDATE: Looks like that post stirred up quite the nest of litigious hornets as a class action suite has been filed.
