Default Katrina's ruins home to thousands of homeless

More than five years after Katrina, New Orleans is struggling to deal with more than 40,000 abandoned properties, many of which the homeless now call home.
At an abandoned 100-year-old factory, they find a few squatters. The factory has become a spot for day laborers working for temp services, restaurants, construction crews. The wages and tips, plus side tricks like collecting aluminum cans, aren't enough to get them into an apartment since rents skyrocketed after the storm.
