|Wall Street Whitman: The Game makes an issue of all the people Meg Whitman has fired.|
In "Wall Street Whitman" you play as California Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman. If you're not aware, Whitman comes from a business background, and in the game you fire pink slips at workers to fire them. At the end of each level, you're rewarded with stats on how many jobs Whitman actually cut at the various companies she's worked at over the years.
Obviously, this is a heavily partisan game, and we're not posting it to take political sides (we're headquartered in Minnesota and have no stake in California politics). We're posting it to illustrate the continued importance of video games - obviously "Wall Street Whitman's" creators at the California Labor Foundation think that interactive media is an effective way to get their message across.
You can check out the game embedded below.
