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.

    1) The occupiers are most likely not even aware of this story.
    2) The occupiers will not care about this story if they ever find out.
    3) The occupiers will justify the fact that these people lost their jobs in order to avoid tarnishing the occupy movement.
    4) The occupiers were never about employment in the first place.

    Black Flag is correct- they are about entitlements, not employment.
    They are about anarchy, and making the USA a socialist country, not about hard work, endeavoring and making a mark in this world.
    They are about feelings and emotions, not reality and responsibility.
    They are the wave of a new, and the dregs of an old generation that are so far left they’ve left the building.
    And with this lib administration and the occupy cities leftist mayors, they will be allowed to ruin businesses, foul the streets and spew their unpleasantness wherever they may roam.
    This is war, but it’s never going to be a fair fight. The equally leftist media will defend these pieces of filth even when they’ve driven hard working decent people to extremes, in order to regain the life they used to live in peace without these maggots outside their doorsteps.

  4. Personally, I hope the wackos continue this well into next year, so people can see what liberals are about.

    The “Donner Party” should be a “riot” in Charlotte next summer.

    At least one article I read seems to take the owners claim with a grain of salt.

    The restaurant has only been opened since July, and the article claims restaurant turnover is high in New York.

    That rings a little hollow to me as other businesses in that area and around similar sites around the country are all claiming a massive drop in business.

    One thing we do know….. OWS is not about getting people jobs.
