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.

“You sure you’re going to be okay,” said Business Woman.
Corporate Man nodded and took a deep breath.
The two of them stood at the back of a large gathering of black clad mourners. Jack stood next to a simple casket and was finishing up the eulogy for Tess Adams. The sun was out and the surrounding grounds were full of green. A far more wholesome green than Corporate Man was used to seeing.
“I’m sorry I couldn’t be there to help you,” Business Woman said. “There are some international entities forming that are cause for fiscal concern. I... I should have made time.”
“Oh, don’t do that, Tanya. None of us could have known.”
Business Woman nodded then looked away.
“…have purchased the land adjacent to our home office and will build a park upon the site,” Jack was saying, “The Tess Adams Memorial Park. It will serve as playground to our daycare facilities and be the future site of the annual company picnic, which will be reinstated to its former glory. We will also gather there…”
Business Woman turned back to Corporate Man and asked. “So what happened to all those executives locked in that conference room?”
“Not sure. Junior won’t tell me. He admits that not all of them survived and he assures me that none of them will be a problem in the future. Apparently, the video tapes are really horrifying.”
“And Corporate Whore? What happened there?”
Corporate Man sighed and said, “What always happens with these money hungry types that plot and scheme for dirty dollars instead of working for the benefit of the team. She lost track of all her plots and plans and became a victim to her own machinations.”
They stood in silence for a moment and then Business Woman said, “Do you think we’ll see more like her?”
“I’m not sure. I hope not. Could you imagine what the world would be like if the market was overrun with bonus junkies and corporate whores?”
