Panel 1: Rose is starting her new job. Aisha, a Black woman in her thirties, leads Rose down a corridor.

Aisha: All right, this session is for people who have developed new physical disabilities later in life. Just observe for now. They probably won't even notice you're here.

Panel 2: They enter a room that has at least four other people in it, though potentially more, as we can't see the whole thing. Visible are a middle-aged white woman in a wheelchair, a middle-aged Black man standing beside her, an elderly bearded white man sitting in a chair, and a middle-aged brown woman. Only the latter is masked.

Middle-Aged Man: Hey, Aisha. Who's the new girl?

Elderly Man: Oooh...fresh meat.

Panel 3: Aisha glances at Rose, whose eyes pop as she is peppered with questions from off panel.

Voice 1: Hi, new girl. What's your deal?

Voice 2: Why the white hair?

Voice 3: Could you massage my neck?

Panel 4:

I may have lied a bit there.

Voice 4: Dance for us!

Alt-Text: As this is Rose's first real job, she's never experienced workplace hazing before.
