FC: The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire | March 25, 1911 | By: Breana Tindall

1: The employees of the 9th floor Asch building were sick of the horrific working conditions and low pay so they joined labor unions like the International Ladies' Garment Workers | Leading up to the event...

2: Because of these Labor Unions, factory owners decided they had the right to lock workers into factories, so that during the work hours nothing could be disturbed.

3: During these work hours, employees were overheated and overworked. | Because of these harsh conditions, things were very unsafe, and when a fire started, nothing could be done to put it out

4: When the flames began | Because the doors were locked, the only way out was by rescuers or to jump to your death.

5: Victims | Among the 146 people that died that day were people ranging from 15 to 43 and they were mostly women.

6: New regulations were issued but not enforced. | In the following days of the fire there were many protest for new safety regulations.

7: Owners of the building, Harris and Blanck went to court and were only forced to pay 75 dollars per life lost. Other than that they were let off free.

8: After the fire the red cross and other companies donated money to the survivors and victims families.
