At the shrimp lot fish market in Westwego, La., fish seller Ruth Graves told a Getty photographer that she has had her slowest month in 30 years and has had to sell her car and put her house on the market to compensate for the drop in the sales. In a meeting with President Obama on Wednesday, BP agreed to set aside $20 billion to compensate victims of the oil spill, like Ruth Graves.
