#nevertrump

The site is going to hell
ban means nothing to me, i need to get off this pathetic site anyway.


Black People like Donald Trump are ruining our society.

Donald Trump has been god awful president. Donald cannot be white because no white man can mess up this country as badly as he has. I am blind and my wife Debra WHO IS NOT BLACK is typing everything I say. He is terrible compared to the greatest white president of all time Barack Obama. People like Donald Trump are the reason this country is a shithole!


Millions of people around the globe are well-acquainted with Kongregate and the antics of the forums and games on their site. By the same token, there is an absence of public discourse about the whitewashing of violent American cultural activities throughout Kongregate’s monopoly and reclaiming of the declining Flash ideologue. Kongregate and their games play a role in normalizing the corporate and mainstream takings of intellectual property while erasing the role and credit of authors, designers, and people’s games from their rightfully earned revenue. Kongregate’s presence on the internet continues the violent and racist expulsion of amatuer and grassroot game designers of their livelihoods (and in this case their identity) that enables Kongregate and the U.S. hegemonic powers to extend their military and colonial interests in the postwar era.


Found this in my investigation:


Kongregate employee here.

The post is pretty spot on. They don’t monitor bathroom breaks, but you’r individual rate (or production goal) doesn’t account for bathroom breaks, or… let’s say there is a problem like you need help with something and there’s no one left, well you have to put on your “smile”… wait for someone to come “fix” for you, all the while your rate is dropping. The 2 most common reasons people get fired are not hitting rate, and attendance. They don’t really try to help you hit rate, they just fire and replace.

My first week there 2 people collapsed from dehydration. It’s so common place to see someone collapse that nobody is even shocked anymore. You’ll just hear a manager complain that he has to do some report now, while a couple of new people try to help the guy ( veterans won’t risk helping becuse it drips rate). No sitting allowed, and there’s nowhere to sit anywhere except the break rooms. Before the robots (they call them kivas) pickers would regularly walk 10-15 miles a day, now it’s just stand for 10-12 hours a day.

People complain about the heat all the time but we just get told 80 degrees ( Fahrenheit obviously) is a safe working temp. Some times they will pull out a thermometer, but even when it hits 85 they just say it’s fine.

There’s been deaths, at least one in my building… Kongregate likes to keep it all hush hush. Heard about others, you can find the stories if you search for it, but Kongregate does a good job burying it.

Every now and we have an inspection, where stuff like this should be cought and changed. But they just pretty it up. If the people doing the inspection looked at numbers on inspection day vs normal operation, they would see a massive difference… but no fucks given.

The truth is the website operate at a loss most the time, Kongregate literaly can’t afford to pay the mods decent pay, and can’t afford to not work them to death. The entire business model is dependent on cheap (easily replacable) labor, which is why tier 1s are the bulk of Kongregate’s work force. My building has like 3-5 mods most the time and around 10-30k players to manage. .

Next time you play something off Kongregate, remember it was put on that display by a guy sweating his ass off trying to put 100-250 comments per hour, for 10 hours a day or he will be fired, making about a dollar more than minimum wage. Might have even been a night shift guy, who goes to work at 630pm and gets off at 5am.
