LOS ANGELES -- The protects continue: This morning, a group of about 50 homeowners (former and current), construction workers, and housing advocates showed up at KB Home's Westwood headquarters at 10990 Wilshire Blvd. During the brief protest, construction workers spoke of workplace exploitation and homeowners described being locked into deceptive loans through Countrywide financing that was pushed through by KB.

Additionally, various buyers described being lied to about tax burdens so they'd qualify for mortgages, being foreclosed on so more profitable short sales
