California Labor Federation-backed Game Mocks Whitman

July 15, 2010 -

The California Labor Federation is obviously not backing California Gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman (R).

The organization has setup a website, complete with Flash game, in order to illustrate what it calls “the pattern of economic destruction Whitman has left behind as she got rich the Wall Street way over the last 20 years.”

The game featured on WallStreetWhitman.com takes players through Whitman’s stops at Stride Rite, Florist Transworld Delivery (FTD), Hasbro, eBay and Goldman Sachs and lets users fire and lay off workers. While at Goldman Sachs, the game’s focus turns to forcing home foreclosures.

In a statement, California Labor Federation Executive Secretary-treasurer Art Pulaski said, “The record shows that Whitman is a one-person weapon of mass job destruction. By attempting to buy the California governor’s office, Whitman wants to take her game to the next level, but we can’t forget there are real lives at stake with every job she cuts, outsources or downsizes.”

The California Labor Federation consists of over 1,200 AFL-CIO and Change to Win unions, representing over 2.1 million members.

Whitman’s campaign hasn’t been idle though; it set up the website JerryFails.com in order to mock her foe this fall, ex-Governor Jerry Brown (D). The site claims that Brown’s “failure follows him everywhere,” and features outtakes from a radio talk show Brown used to host in the 1990s in order to share his “very strange views.”

MaskedPixelanteSo, there's been massive positive reception to the Mario Kart 8 DLC bundle. Somehow, I doubt it would have gotten as much positive buzz if they called it a "Season Pass".08/27/2014 - 9:34pm

MechaTama31Haven't been to GOG in a while. Their website reminds me of the old Zune software now...08/27/2014 - 6:01pm
Andrew EisenAlso, I know it's nitpicking but only ONE of the 21 movies on offer goes for $15. Four more are $10 and the rest are $6. But right now, all of them are $6 (except for two that are free).08/27/2014 - 3:22pm
E. Zachary KnightMasked, What are you talking about? I guess you never buy DVDs either?08/27/2014 - 3:21pm
Andrew EisenNot if they've hired more people.08/27/2014 - 3:13pm
MaskedPixelantePlus, now that they're negotiating movies, that's LESS manpower to negotiate true, pre-2000, non-console-port classics.08/27/2014 - 3:08pm
MaskedPixelanteNo rewatch value, once you've seen it there's no reason to rewatch it, and it's 15 bucks down the drain.08/27/2014 - 3:06pm
E. Zachary KnightIndie movies are a great start. They need a great distribution system too.08/27/2014 - 3:04pm
Andrew EisenEven if that were true, so what?08/27/2014 - 3:01pm
MaskedPixelanteYou do realize that there are going to be NO Hollywood movies on this service, right? It's all going to be indie documentaries and stuff like that.08/27/2014 - 2:56pm
Andrew EisenI think it's an awesome next step for GOG and completely fail to see why anyone finds it problematic or improper.08/27/2014 - 2:51pm
