About

Human Resources (HR) is a collection of short stories about human interaction in the workplace. It features three unrelated but similar characters who work menial and thankless jobs in service to others. Hailey Rothman fights corporate doublespeak and legalese in her job in the HR department of a soulless consulting company. Caroline Kassir tries to avoid the hardening cynicism that comes with her job as a nursing assistant. And Jess Ruiz struggles to maintain her passion for helping ex-cons even when they don’t want to help themselves.
