Video game giant Electronic Arts is taking the axe to its Montreal office, laying off nearly two-thirds of the staff.
Named one of the worst employers in the United States over the past two years, the move came weeks after EA’s CEO resigned due to the company’s financial struggles.
The California-based gaming company has received a number of Quebec government subsidies. In 2010, the government agreed to cover 37.5 per cent of the labour costs at the studio, paying over $11,000 per employee.
Hey Quebec and Feds, get back that money from EA!
