News isn't so bright for much of the Baltimore job market. Exelon Corporation and Constellation Energy Group Inc will be merging - that is not the news portion, though. Rather, the overseeing group reported to the state's energy regulators that the merger would result in a planned cut to 600 jobs. That will seriously hurt the already fragile Baltimore market and cause numerous tensions throughout the industry in the state.
However, it is not clear if all of the job cuts and position eliminations will be in Baltimore or at any of the company's other locations. The Exelon officials did note that many of the job cuts will occur within the city, with the elimination of vacant jobs being the primary step the company takes.
