Corporate Man is called in to investigate reports of vile, unethical business practices at Great American Business Company. What he finds there just might destroy him (except we all know the ending to The Tragic Death of Corporate Man so it should be fairly obvious that it can't really destroy him, though it can come close).
Enslaved by the Bonus Whores is an all new Corporate Man Adventure Serial. Chapters will post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

“Are you positive,” said the woman with far too many teeth.
“One of my scouts just reported from Price Killers, he’s tracking them through the low-price warehouse right now,” a voice full of crackle and static responded
The woman with far too many teeth always used the speaker phone option on her cell phone. She feared the radiation from mobile units would accelerate aging. What she what she had not accounted for was that in her efforts to decipher the garbled speech coming from her phone, she would often scowl. This caused two deep furrows to cut through her brow. Over time this left her with a permanent set of vertical wrinkles.
“Do not engage,” she said, fighting the urge to grin and allow all her teeth to show. “I’ve got the helicopter on stand by. I’m on my way.”
She wasn’t supposed to be using the tech boys for this kind of work, by they were out in the field, nearest to Corporate Man’s current location, and she didn’t want to risk losing him. She wasn’t authorized to commandeer the helicopter either and landing in on the roof of a Price Killers in the downtown area would, no doubt, cause a shit storm. But once she had Corporate Man, all would be forgiven.
