Boeing CEO gives up bonus following plane crashes

Boeing’s CEO Dennis Muilenburg will not take a bonus this year following two crashes involving the firm’s 737 Max plane which killed 346 people. Boeing’s chairman David Calhoun said Muilenburg had made the suggestion. Calhoun said the Boeing board believes Muilenburg ’has done everything right’ and is positioning the company to return the 737 Max to service after the accidents.

Can you imagine the optics given cancel culture today had he kept the bonus! At least this way he's offering a penance for his sins of not leading virtuously enough.
