Yet another GameStop location has had enough and has resulted in all of their employees walking out from their positions. A redditor going by ticolino_123 posted on the official GameStop subreddit their entire store has left in support of their Store Manager. This store manager, who also goes by the Reddit username Chlazzy-Blue was let go from their position after they refused an offer to be “promoted” to SL2. SL2 is a position where someone acts as the store manager for two locations in their area with a very small increase in pay. Other store managers have noted that the pay raise is on average $1.00 to $1.25 per hour
SL in question here. I am so fortunate for the team I had. I didn’t ask them to do this with me, but they stood their ground from the moment I told them what happened a week ago. Absolute amazing team.
This isn’t the first time an entire store has participated in a walkout. Last June, a GameStop located at the Gameway Mall in Lincoln Nebraska due to abuse from their district manager and terrible working conditions. One of these former employees had noted there had been 4 walkouts between August 2021 and June 2022 at this store alone.
