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.

“They’re in,” Corporate Man whispered.
He, Senior Executive, and Fair Wage had been in the building for nearly thirty minutes. They’d swept into the lobby leading a group of Japanese businessmen, acting as if they’d courted the foreign tradesmen and were bringing them into the building for an important meeting. They breezed right past the reception desk and into the elevators where they quickly separated themselves from the confused Asian entrepreneurs.
Their next step had been to gather at a water cooler. This was most advantageous to their purpose as water coolers are out of bounds zones in the corporate world. Milling about is expected here and almost always allowed, taking on an almost religious air. A company dare not interfere with this important American institution.
Especially since they could write it off on their taxes.
Supply and Demand were also inside. To gain entrance they’d shown up as job applicants and were instructed to head over to Personnel. No one noticed when they did not show up in that department.
Corporate Man checked his greed-filled ray gun.
“This thing is freaking out. We’re definitely in the right place,” he said. He loosened his grip on it, trying to decipher the dominant thrust of its movements. “I think it’s trying to go up.”
“That’s where Business Woman is heading,” said Senior Executive. “The twenty second floor.”
“Right. Yeah, her cover job. We should make our way there up there,” Corporate Man said, checking his tie and slipping the vibrating ray gun into his suit pocket. Senior Executive smoothed the sleeves of his dark grey suit and adjusted Fair Wage’s collar before they strode into a nearby elevator.
