Thank you so much for your support! We are struck by the enormous amount of love you, the players and community, have shown us over these last 21 days. The number of people who added their voices to ours helped to demonstrate that they believed, as we do, in a fair wage for quality work.

Thanks to you, we have reached an agreeable resolution with Voltage and we are excited to share that every single writer has received a meaningful pay increase and improved transparency at work!

Lovestruck Game Writers Deserve Fair Pay!

🖤🤎❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
The contract writers of Lovestruck have come together to unanimously demand a base rate and raise rate more in line with industry standards than they are currently, as well as more transparency regarding the performance of the routes we write. To that end, we are asking the management of Voltage USA to recognize our demands and meet with us to discuss them. At this time, management has stated that they are not willing to negotiate with us as a group. In the company's now deleted statement, management claimed that they have tried everything in order to come to a mutual resolution, and yet they have not agreed to a single video or phone call with us.

All we're asking for is an opportunity to speak with one another directly and honestly regarding the needs of the people on both sides. We are optimistic that there are still ways to resolve this in a manner that will make Lovestruck better in every way, and for everyone involved.

Why is this important?

All of the Lovestruck writers are members of marginalized genders and/or sexualities. Voltage has given us an invaluable foot in the door to the industry and a platform to tell stories that represent our voices, our passion, and our experiences. We are also all fans of the app, and we care deeply about the stories we tell. We don't want this to be the end of our partnership with Lovestruck, nor does it have to be.

However, the conditions under which we are currently working are untenable. Not only are we paid less than half the industry standard in both base pay and our raises, we are not provided with information about how the routes we write perform either. The increased base pay that Voltage is currently offering is still well below the industry standard. We are eager to have an open and honest conversation with management in order to work together to settle on an equitable rate.

The ultimate goal of the contract writers of Lovestruck is to see our hard work and commitment to authentic storytelling given the value it deserves, which will allow us to continue to provide loyal Lovestruck fans with the top-notch content they deserve.

We've seen the support for our request for equitable pay and improved conditions come pouring in across social media, and it means the world to us. We cannot thank you enough!

By signing this petition, you add your voice to the chorus of Lovestruck fans, game workers, romance writers, organizations, and more in inviting Voltage executives to hop on a call with us to discuss these matters.

Thanks again for your incredible support!
🖤🤎❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
