The writer relates that because there is a dearth of part time jobs for college students and places where Californians or Angelinos can sit back and relax for free are being closed, the global financial crisis has put a damper on the more culturally savvy Los Angelinos. The writer then describes his/her quest to find free cultural events, including visits to art galleries and specifically, the Wells Fargo museum.

From the Paper:

"Now that California is officially a member of the double-digit unemployment club in the country, money is getting tighter in the nation's tinsel town. When the economy was at its peak a couple of years ago, college kids like me are getting ready to get pre-holiday part time jobs so we will have enough cash when the December holidays arrived. The money earned before and during the Halloween and Thanksgiving holidays and the pre-Christmas holidays are substantial to buy holiday gifts for friends and relatives or probably hop on a car with friends, drive all the way south and spend the post-Christmas holiday down in Tijuana, Mexico - even to the point of spending a wild new year there! But now, the part time jobs usually reserved for college students are being filled by unemployed adults. A friend of mine even went for an interview at one of the flashy and snotty stores at the Hollywood and Highland Center a few weeks ago. The position was for a part time store sales job but she was surprised when she found out that one of her competitors for the job was her uncle who lost his job as an advertising executive earlier this year...whoa, talk about family feud!"
