Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire legacy

Cornell University – ILR School – The Triangle Factory Fire – Photos and Illustrations.

Today is the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. This is our past… and our future if unions are decertified and delegitimized in the U.S.

Rumor has it that Illinois is considered the last stronghold of unionism in this country, and that the Koch-funded Rethugs are introducing a bill decertifying all Education unions on March 29th. That’s when the Illinois Legislature opens for Spring session. Education, as I’m sure I don’t need to remind you, is a female-dominated profession.

Coming up soon: a post on job safety in Education. There will be thrills, excitement, and way too many chills.
