Macias, 24, said she had driven an hour from her home in San Bernardino County to spend several weekends at the City Hall encampment.
She said she was laid off from her job at a private university corporation in February, but witnessed the president of the company purchase a new Jaguar. Macias said she is living off her savings and is worried about making her rent.
Macias said she has applied for numerous jobs, including at Pizza Hut and Target, but remains unemployed. She said could relate to the Occupy movement and decided to join in the campaign against economic inequality.
"It's not fun to sleep on concrete," she said. "It's not luxurious."
