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 208

It’s been long suspected by the poor that the super rich live for extravagance.  This is mostly true.  And in the cases where it proves false, those in the super rich majority believe that this financially humble minority suffer from an acute mental disorder of one variety or another.
In the case of the elevator connecting the thirty-ninth floor of the Jacob Center Tower to the fifty-second floor the theory upheld by the poor proves true.  Instead of a common elevator, or even a decadent lift, executives ride on float tubes made of walrus hide.  Why walrus?  The mere whim of whichever big wig initially decided on float tubes.  And the float tubes?  Also flights of fancy.  A high powered CEO had lunch with a childhood friend, remembered times spent floating around on a lake, then proposed a pool-elevator design based on his noontime nostalgia.
The water in the pool is imported glacial run off, heated by a geothermal spring, filtered and piped across two states into this single chamber.
