Using Occupy Baltimore

Just as is the case all over the country there are people who are picketing and making a statement about how bad the economy is by picketing in the major city centers of major cities. This is not to say that what they are doing is not making a good point and that they are simply exercising their rights to free speech but there may be better ways to channel their energy towards making things better as opposed to simply complaining about what is wrong.

The Baltimore Job Market Takes a Hit with Exelon Corp Cut

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.
