Gaming Dev Fined/Jailed For Not Paying Employees

As if the gaming industry isn't in enough poo. Owning a business requires you to be a responsible person. Not many people that make it to the top understand what that means. Has anyone else noticed that the less intelligent you are, the higher you climb on the corporate ladder? But that’s neither here nor there.

David Rushton, Sensory Sweep Studios, had a business that focused on selling games that were adapted from movies. And he had a problem paying his employees. Because of this, he’s being sent to jail for a year along with a 12 million dollar fine, which probably won’t go to any of the unpaid employees. This also includes a charge of tax evasion and racketeering.

These people must have been incredibly trusting. If I saw even one paycheck late and given the excuse “oh it’ll be next Friday” I would have gone straight to the department of labor. But these employees were letting this go on for years. I’m sure they’ve all found new jobs since then.

I hope they all find some comfort in this, but the butthole will be out in the year and will probably try it again. Cheaters are always cheaters.
