very interesting. horrible story. – jlg, nc   12 May 2015

Why has no one researched the corruption that enabled factory owners, Isaac Harris and Max Blanck, to get off with NO penalty at ALL despite forcing their employees to work in inhumane conditions, in a vertical death trap, behind LOCKED DOORS? Some politicians and judges palms were no doubt greased. New York, and the heirs of Blanck and Harris, owe substantial reparations to the descendants of these bereaved families who were so disgracefully treated. – ELW, Ontario   6 May 2015

It is not lost on me that I am able to enjoy, vacation time, paid days off, sick pay, the Family Medical Care Act, and the fact my children attend school and do not have to work to support our family as these victims did.
