Good News! Occupiers Cause 21 People To Lose Their Jobs

But, remember, the Occutards are in it for the 99% of people who aren’t super duper rich and able to influence people like, oh, say, Barack Obama, into scratching their backs after donating money to campaigns which the candidates, like, say, Barack Obama, solicit

(CBS NY) The Occupy Wall Street movement, which says its goals include improving the economic lot for 99 percent of Americans, may have some explaining to do to some cafe workers now out of a job.

Mark Epstein, owner of the Milk Street Cafe at 40 Wall Street, just let 21 employees go.

The reason? The barricades police have set up throughout Wall Street as a consequence of the ongoing demonstration.

Before the Occupiers started their little “we’re entitled” smelly fest, the business was doing awesome. It was in a great location, with no real competition. Now, because of all the barricades, there isn’t enough traffic to sustain what was a fast growing business. The cafe is also now closing at 3pm instead of 9pm.

“I think this is an issue of both Occupy Wall Street and the city officials. There’s protest and how you react to protest,” Epstein said. “If the barriers do not come down, I do not see how we can survive. This has got to become like America again. You have to be free to walk around.”

“Everybody should understand the consequences of their actions,” he said.

It’s good of Epstein to not blame it all on the Occupiers. Of course, without their unhinged, juvenile protest aimed at the wrong people (it should be aimed at government), there would be no need for the police presence, much of which is to certainly protect the morons from crime. And the public from being annoyed by the Occupiers.
