In a bit of irony, just hours after it was announced that fired Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg, who lost his job over Boeing's disastrous handling of two fatal crashes of their 737 Max in which 346 people died, will leave the company with a huge $62 million golden parachute - the company also announced it will be laying off 2800 workers.
Wow, I can’t help but wonder just how much Muilenburg might have walked away with had he actually done a good job? Anyway, it isn’t like all those laid off Boeing workers will just be forgotten. Hell, as soon as they apply for their unemployment benefits, congressional Republicans will soon be making the rounds, referring to them as a bunch of moochers and lazy loafers.
But good grief, knowingly allowing a defective product to go to market which ends up killing nearly 400 people, and then walking away with a sweet $62 million “golden parachute?” Now, I’m no aviation expert, but I’m guessing those poor folks unfortunate enough to be onboard one his planes, could have used a damn parachute themselves.
