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.

“Hello and thanks for calling. No one can come to the phone right now, so please wait for the tone. Then leave your name, phone number and message. Deet-do-deet-do-deet.”
“Made huge progress today,” Corporate Man said. “They’re approving me for the managerial bonus program. I don’t have any additional information on that, but I’m pretty sure it’s the root of what’s gone wrong at Great American Business Company. I had some face time with the bosslady today and I gleaned a bit of information from her while we were talking. I could’ve sensed more if I’d managed physical contact, but her lust for this bonus that she’s so eager to dangle in front of me is off the chart. I had no problem picking up the broad strokes of it. She’s raking in at least fifteen percent of her wage from these bonuses. There’s potential for an even twenty-five percent if she cuts the departments staffing enough. Anyway, now that I’m part of the program I should be getting the details soon. You know, if I can keep this pace up, I’ll be back at the Office by the end of next week. If you get a chance to visit Junior, tell that I wish him well.”
