Photographer Rich Ryan and reporter Scott Russell walked the Warehouse District on a recent

late morning to talk to passersby who were heading to lunch.

"I am interviewing a guy at noon. So I am thinking, 'Well, I never do any prep work, so I should go through his r/sum/ and pick out some questions,' ... It is an electromechanical assembler position, $30 an hour. So it's a good job. There is a list he has to meet, criteria-wise. I am taking him out to lunch. I am thinking, 'Where am I going to lunch today? What do I feel like?' ... I do like to see people get employment. I think things are turning around. I feel any job, the minimum should be $10 an hour, just because you need that to survive, to have a quality of life."
