📒The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire ✍ Brenda Lange
✏The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Book Summary : In the early years of the twentieth century, conditions were harsh in factories all over New York City, but they proved devastating at one in particular. On March 25, 1911, a fast-moving fire destroyed the top three floors of the building in which the Triangle Shirtwaist factory was located. One hundred and forty-six young women and several men died in the worst workplace disaster to take place in the United States to that date. Cluttered and unsanitary conditions in the factory contributed to the blaze, but what fueled the public's outrage was the failure of the factory's owners to establish and maintain a safe working environment in the first place. The fire at the Triangle factory inspired dozens of reforms and spurred legislation to enforce workplace safety. It also contributed to an awakening attitude of social awareness and responsibility nationwide.

✏The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire and the Fight for Workers Rights Book Summary : In November 1909, thousands of factory workers walked off the job to protest the terrible working conditions in New York City factories. Joining the picket lines was dangerous, with thugs and police officers harassing picketers, but the protests stirred action. Many factory owners finally agreed to some of the workers' demands and improved conditions. But nothing changed for workers at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, and those workers would pay a high price for the company's dangerous conditions. In 1911, a devastating fire swept through the Triangle factory, killing 146 workers. In the months following the tragedy, the rights of workers finally gained real traction as the state government formed a safety commission and enacted new safety laws.

📒The Triangle Fire ✍ Leon Stein
✏The Triangle Fire Book Summary : "Leon Stein’s gripping narrative of the Triangle tragedy is one of the classics of American history. As the grandson of a onetime Triangle seamstress, I salute the reissue of a book that anyone who cares about labor, past or present, should read."—Michael Kazin, Georgetown University, author of The Populist Persuasion: An American History and other books Praise for the 1962 edition— "Stein recreates the tragic events of the fire in all their dramatic intensity. His moving account is a work of dedication."—New York Times Book Review "With commendable restraint, Stein uses newspapers, official documents, and the evidence of survivors to unfold a story made more harrowing by the unemotional simplicity of its narration."—Library Journal "Stein... suggests that the fire alerted the public to shocking working conditions all over the city and helped the unions organize the clothing industry, but his good taste keeps him from selling the reader any silver lining. A by-product of the careful research that has gone into this excellent narrative is an interesting sketch of the hard lives and times of working girls in the days when the business of America was business."—New Yorker March 25, 2011, marks the centennial of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, in which 146 garment workers lost their lives. A work of history relevant for all those who continue the fight for workers’ rights and safety, this edition of Leon Stein’s classic account of the fire features a substantial new foreword by the labor journalist Michael Hirsch, as well as a new appendix listing all of the victims’ names, for the first time, along with addresses at the time of their death and locations of their final resting places.
