Shirtwaist Factory Project Flyer

Synopsis: In the spring of 1911, a fire tore through the Triangle Shirtwaist Company in New York City. Unsafe conditions in the factory and a distinct lack of concern for workers' rights exacerbated the effects of the fire and culminated in the deaths of 146 factory workers, primarily women and recent immigrants. The ensuing protests, trial, and backlash resulted in many of the worker protections we take for granted today.
