Scenes From the Unemployment Office

I went to an unemployment office in the Los Angeles area yesterday on assignment. Understandably, most of the people there were not interested in being photographed. One lady who allowed me to photograph her told me to "send these to Obama". Many of the people were waiting to use the hotline phones that connect directly to Sacramento and the EDD headquarters to check on unemployment checks etc. I heard some sad stories and saw some frustrated people just trying to get by in these hard times.
