Actual BB supervisors roll their eyes at this though. They wanted us to be real employees too, but would point at GB supervisors like “yeah he gets paid the same as you to manage that whole team cus the last guy quit, on the promise he’d get his rightful position next quarter... three quarters ago.”
There were folks there for 8 years still on green badges, still collecting unemployment every furlough. But they had a fun break room and were (binary) trans friendly though!
Having worked for EA: fuck EA
There’s a two tiered caste of workers :) QA/Compliance/Internal tech support/Customer service are all what we call “green badges”; they’re not actual EA employees, instead “contractors” via a company called Pro Unlimited. They work you on 9 months on, 3 months off contracts so you never hit the legal limit before they have to give you real benefits. This is how EA maintains their Top Place to Work awards.
I also do digital work (black line art mandalas or patterns, or coloured mandalas) that's usually in the range of $30 - $50 for a non-exclusive commercial license depending on complexity.
Examples of my work:

i’m coming here as a total last resort so please hear me out. I’m a trans black 19 year old girl living in canada in a very hostile and abusive household. [...] rent in toronto is extremely expensive and i’ve found a possible room i could rent out for the time being but my savings isn’t enough to secure housing.[...] i really really need this money to survive.
Today I announced a new mentoring programme for Black artists in the West Midlands (UK) who want to explore the creative potential of live coding. Details are here: https://algo-afro-futures.lurk.org/
In short four participants will get mentoring in all things live coding from me and @yaxu over four sessions and will be given a fee of £100 per session attended.
I know my reach on the fediverse is small so if you know anyone who could benefit from this please pass it on to them #livecoding
