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.

After nearly a decade of imprisonment, Corporate Man returns to find the economy in ruins and his deadliest enemies in control of all but a fraction of society's wealth. He embarks upon a quest to set right the wrongs of the business world; a task that will ultimately destroy him.

Chapter 181

“How much longer do you think it will take them to reach the top?” asked Business Woman.
Senior Executive shrugged.  Corporate Man and Commander Credit had gone on ahead, climbing the metal-rung ladder into the darkness above while the rest of the Union waited on top of the false elevator at the bottom of the shaft.  Discussions had lead them to a conclusion that this was the best course of action considering their experience with the ever descending staircase between the lobby and the thirteenth floor.
Senior Executive reviewed his portfolio on his smart phone and Business Woman chatted with Supply, their discussion often returning to the relationship of Supply and Demand.  Demand tried to ignore them but couldn’t help feeling irritated by divulgences of matters he considered personal in nature.
A beep sounded on Senior Executive’s phone.
He read the text and said, “They’ve made it.  They’re on the 39th floor.”
There was a feeling of relief and an urge to celebrate.  This was immediately crushed by the realization that they now had to undertake a dark, thirteen story climb up a ladder of metal rungs.
