The Tragedy that Gave Birth to Unions: Remembering the Triangle Fire 100 years later

Post by Guest on Fri Mar 25, 2011 5:44 pm

As labor unions battle to retain collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin, Ohio and other states, they are marking the centennial of a tragic factory fire that started the movement that first won those rights.

A scene of surreal horror engulfed the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in Manhattan 100 years ago on March 25, 1911 during a disaster that ultimately would lead to better and safer conditions for all working people in the United States.

I've grown up in NY so I always knew about this tragedy. Upside is that it woke up politicians to the need for govt to step in and protect workers rights. What a quaint idea! Anyway the building still stands downtown, there is a plaque and there are crowds gathering to commemorate the event.
