To be considered interesting storytelling, a story’s structure should be built around a clear conflict between good and evil–a good-hearted and righteous underdog, hired as a temporary employee, who stands up to his Goliath of a boss, who is a shameless and brazen oppressor. But from the onset of the story, Chang Kangmyoung’s “Fired,” the reader finds themselves resonating with, empathizing with, and cheering on the superior who wants to fire the subordinate part-timer. Why is this so?
