Baltimore's curfew takes a toll on city businesses

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 05/03/2015 - 09:45
By Scott Malone BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Five days after rioters torched buildings and looted stores in an outbreak of violence over the death of a black man who was fatally injured in police custody, Baltimore's bars and restaurants are hurting. With police and National Guard troops enforcing a 10 p.m. nightly curfew that will continue over Saturday night, businesses in all corners of the city are forced to close early and are seeing fewer customers during the shortened hours they are open, business owners said on Saturday. "It's just devastating, financially," said Ron Furman, owner of Max's Taphouse, in the city's Inner Harbor district, which is popular with tourists. It's a ghost town." Traffic was slowest on Tuesday and Wednesday when many downtown office workers chose to work from home or left work early out of fears of a repeat of Monday's rioting, business owners said.

U.S. judge affirms block of Allegiant Air pilots strike

Yahoo! National News - Sun, 05/03/2015 - 06:12
(Reuters) - A U.S. judge has said pilots at Allegiant Travel Co do not have grounds to strike, affirming an order from a month earlier that had temporarily blocked a walkout, the company said in a statement on Saturday. The decision prevents a strike that could have disrupted the travel of thousands of passengers, the airline said. The pilots union said it will file an expedited appeal of the decision because it believes the court injunction is not in accordance with federal law. "With the threat of a strike lifted, Allegiant looks forward to directing its time and energy back to the negotiating table," the company said.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who has largely been absent from demonstrations over Gray's death, mingled with the crowd on Saturday near the West Baltimore intersection that saw the worst of rioting on Monday after Gray's funeral.
