Young Homeless College Graduate in L.A.

23 year-old college graduate (English Literature and Creative Writing) from Connecticut with no parents to fall back on, is interviewed at his panhandling spot in L.A. by daily commuter woman in car. He says that many of the homeless are young adults like him because they don't qualify for SSI or food stamps and are the first being laid-off when companies have to thin out the staff. He realizes how deep is the problem and sees no light at the end of the tunnel.
One of the saddest videos I've ever seen.
