“I think both with the how the workers have been treated and how the community has really been kicked aside here with the creeks, one of the problems we’re seeing is Wall Street values being applied to rural, working class communities,” said Smith. “That’s the values of ‘money first,’ and ‘consequences don’t matter.’”.

It’s sunny and in the mid-70s in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama right now. Normally, that would be prime conditions for a swim in Davis Creek or Texas Creek. But right now, both are running black, full of thick wastewater runoff.
