As Kotaku reported, one of the busiest GameStop, located in Lincoln, Nebraska, was protested by employees. The store was closed after four employees decided not to return to the store due to bad working conditions and abuse. In the past weeks, GameStop has faced a labor law violation lawsuit by an employee. The fact that GameStop is frequently exposed to such accusations has drawn attention to the company.

On the paper they pasted on the front door, the employees included the following words;

“We regret to inform you that we all quit. Our District Manager has no respect for us as employees or as human beings. We have been told by our district manager that we were supposed to have had this store achieving sales quotas and running perfectly 6 months ago. Which was 3 months before alot of us even got hired. Unfortunately, despite the staff’s best efforts, we are not god.”

Also on the paper were the addresses of three competitors located elsewhere in the mall. Customers were advised to do their shopping from those stores.

“Spend your money at an establishment that respects it’s employees.”

When Kotaku called the store on Monday, they said it would reopen soon and were directed to contact Longacre Square Partners, a communications firm specializing in investor relations, shareholder activism, and crisis management. In addition, Kotaku stated that the company representative refused to make any significant comments on the situation on the phone, and they did not agree to make a written comment.
