Over 100 Years Ago, 123 Young Women Working in a Factory Never Came Home. It Changed Our Country

March 25, 2016 Monika Greenhow

I have a hard time watching this and not getting terribly angry. Those 123 young women and 23 men who died in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire on March 25, 1911, deserve to be remembered. But we're watching it happen all over again in developing countries that supply Walmart, Gap, and other marketing and retail giants. Sorry/not sorry, I'm mad as hell, and I wish we could live in a world where we didn't have to take this anymore. Warning: some violent images.
