Squatter's Rights and Wrongs

Nationwide, squatters are becoming a serious issue for homeowners and new buyers. Correspondent Judy Muller takes a deeper look at the situation here in Southern California and finds out that squatters are not only seeking temporary refuge in empty homes, they're now furnishing them and illegally putting them up for rent on websites like Craigslist. Then, following the success of the ethno-archaeological book "Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century," Val Zavala profiles what the lives of those featured in the book look like and examines how the authors took an archaeological approach to modern 'material culture.' And finally we take a look at the latest in job occupations: chicken sitter.
