The story "Location for Rent" originally aired on March 26, 2009.

At more than 12 percent, unemployment in California is at historic highs. But, if you add in the people who are underemployed, that figure skyrockets to well over 20 percent. Underemployed? Many of these are people who've taken jobs that pay much, much less than what they were making before the economy went into a tailspin. L.A. Times columnist David Lazarus looks at this new, downward mobility, and the effect it's having on life in Southern California. Plus, if you can get work, maybe your house can, too. Val Zavala looks at the business of renting out your home as a film shoot location. Finally, always funny, always provocative Gustavo "Ask A Mexican" Arellano shares a personal tale of unemployment.
