According to the fire marshal, this mess caused the fire to grow very quickly that they some workers had no time to escape. Also, the doors were locked to prevent the workers from stealing and leaving early. In my opinion, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory lacked of safety and cleaning environment. This was hundreds years ago, that's why it lacked of firefighting equipment because back in the day, things were different. Thus, all factories lacked of safety conditions.
Friday, March 27, 2009 Triangle Fire and Rose Schneiderman's Speech One of the greatest industrial tragedies in U.S. history occurred on March 25, 1911, when 146 workers, mostly young immigrant women, died in a fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist company in New York City. The victims had been trapped by blocked exit doors and faulty fire escapes. The aftermath of the catastrophe brought grief and recriminations. Protest rallies and memorial meetings were held throughout the city. During one meeting at the Metropolitan Opera House, tension broke out between the working-class Lower East Siders who filled the galleries (and saw class solidarity as the ultimate solution to the problems of industrial safety) and the middle- and upper-class women in the boxes who sought reforms like creation of a bureau of fire prevention.
Book review preliminary After read couple chapters of ” When the state trembled”, I decided to write my book review on this book. As everybody knows that Winnipeg General Strike in 1919 is the most important historical event in Canada; in order to help people memorize this event, most books and articles narrate it partly based on authors self bias. By simply read and judge this book, I list some of my opinions about it. Firstly, I really like the day-by-day writing technique that the authors using in the book. It is a brilliant way that presented the six weeks of massive and dramatic general strike and also gives readers a clear timeline for the event, makes this memorial event more vivid and easy to understand.
David Von Drehle, author of Triangle The Fire That Changed America, has written a book that has a very broad appeal. It will appeal to the common reader as well as those in academia. The book can be viewed as an important contributor to women’s history as well as labor history and even political history. He tries to prove his thesis that the fire did in fact change America by using newspaper and magazine articles written about the different people portrayed in the book. He was also able to utilize records from the trial of the factory owners Isaac Harris and Max Blanck.
The sources that the author cites are informative and up to date, as well as reputable. The book is written more to satisfy the further education of laymen and is written in such a way that they can better understand. Not only does the book show the danger of the avian flu virus, but it is also helpful in pointing to the economic effects of the disease. Johnson, Niall.

Before the war, women were treated awfully, and were not allowed to work or make a living for themselves and their families. After World War II, although many women lost their jobs at the factory, they were able to get other jobs elsewhere. Women were able to movie in to jobs in the booming service sector, where there was a great need for employees. They became teachers, nurses, librarians, bank tellers, and social workers. At these jobs women were able to earn just over half of what men earned.
As a result of that, especially during overhaul at fires, I have acquired so much knowledge of cause and effect relationships of fire as it pertains to fire behavior. Because of the fact that fire fighters work in fires and get a glimpse of fire behavior in real-time I believe that fire fighters make better fire investigators. I also strongly feel that fire fighters make better fire investigators because of the fire academy. In fire academy we are taught very well the behavior of fire, the chemistry and make up of it, and how it behaves in different types of building construction. Even in the article I read it stated regarding fire investigators, that “This technical aspect of the job requires knowledge of building construction and materials and the effects of fire upon those materials.

When the training was completed, she was told to report to the order-entry department the following Monday. When she was first employed, either Linda failed to read and understand the printed information about her regular work schedule or perhaps the recruiter forgot to tell her that she was to fill a spot in a special shift that worked from 4:00 a.m. until noon. In any case, Linda failed to report to work on the early schedule on the first day of regular work. When she did arrive at 8:00a.m. her supervisor criticized her for lack of responsibility.
