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.

There was something ominous about the seemingly cheerful pictures and after a moment, Franklin Buck saw it. The background in all the photos was the deep, open ocean. Barely visible in the gloom was an ocean predator. A barracuda or stingray. Most were sharks, lurking at the edges of visible space, ready to attack the unprepared.

“You prefer the killer robots then?” asked Fair Wage.

“We will,” said Supply. “As soon as we find another staircase.”
