Restaurant Near Occupy Wall Street Lays Off 21 Employees

Steel police barricades near the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York's Zuccotti Park are hurting some nearby businesses -- and have led at least one restaurant owner to lay off employees.Marc Epstein, owner of Milk Street Cafe, said the metal barriers are reducing foot-traffic and forced him to lay off 21 of his 120 workers last week amidst plummeting sales.
His repeated calls to police to remove the blockades have gone unanswered.
