Thinking of panhandling for rent money

Wasn't able to make my car payment, and just able to make my car insurance because of my mom's help, but rent is due tomorrow and Uber definitely isn't paying the bills.

I'm a senior in college and left my job at Starbucks to start searching for career opportunities that are more toward my field of study. I thought Uber would help me through my senior year, but I'm struggling bad(And before you ask, yes I already tried going back to Starbucks).

I live in Los Angeles, so I'm just thinking of making a sign(truthful one-need $625 for rent), finding a busy intersection and seeing if it pays off more than uber.

What do you guys think? Also what legal aspects should I know? It's not illegal, right?

My pride is already gone, so I figure I have nothing to lose.

Why didn't Starbucks take you back? I heard they pay pretty well and have benefits. I'd drop uber in a heart beat for Starbucks. Might apply soon actually.
A friend of mine here in LA had to leave overseas and Starbucks wouldn't give him the time off. So he quit. When he came back, they wouldn't hire him and it was very difficult to deal with other locations because they have the same district manager.

Getting to the point, here in LA atleast, if SB blacklists you, you will never work in this town again.
