Today In History, March 25

Today is the anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. Both the linked website and the video are worth reviewing as this fire and the deaths that resulted from it, led to major improvements in work space safety regulations, though it was many more years before unions were able to bring about the conditions we take for granted today.

I remember studying this fire and the reforms that resulted from it. Such a terrible tragedy.
