  STORY: Social Work

When I was a case worker in Hollywood, California, I suggested we hang pictures in the waiting room. I was told that these welfare recipients were so poor that “pictures wouldn’t make any difference for them,” and that “California needs to save money to improve the highways.” I was fired for over-identifying with the client population 

but we can go to headquarters of multi-billion $ conglomerates and see commissioned art hanging in their waiting rooms for free!
