This year is the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in New York--a pivotal event in the development of the development of safety laws and the founding of the middle class in the United States.
The National Labour Committee has put together a video that commemorates this factory fire.
The video then turns our attention to how working conditions in developing world now are worse that working conditions in New York 100 years ago. The video is a fairly graphic and very moving.
