Blog Post Spurs Potential Legal Trouble for Electronic Arts

The San Francisco Examiner reports that an anonymous writer who claims to be the spouse of an Electronic Arts employee has sparked an online venting session.

The report has drawn hundreds of disgruntled employees out of their shells to complain of slave-like work conditions. As a result, employees at EA, one of the country’s most successful video game companies, are beginning to talk of unionizing and bringing litigation against the corporation.
