so sad. – pj, ga   23 Apr 2018

This is by far one of the most heart wrenching tragedies of workplace accidents I have ever heard of. This was so much more of an issue than just lack of precautions, the workers were treated maliciously at nearly all times. It certainly wasn't intentional, but the fact that Blanck and Harris locked all but one route of doors certainly escalated the situation to a severity it should never have reached. – Brandon Duncan, Central Valley of California   19 Apr 2018

So sad to read and see the negate that the employees went through. Businesses should be accountable for a safe environment for their employees. – nww, Louisiana   6 Apr 2018

Poignant, respectfully presented on this site. We must never forget. The tragedy was totally preventable.Doors had been locked. Most people were required to work until noon, these brutes required full day.There had been signage on elevators—if you don't come in on Saturday, don't come in on Monday. Remember too, brave New Yorkers who tried to save them. One year later, April 1912, the Titanic Disaster, also man- made and completely avoidable. Thank unions for 40 hour week and for bringing safety to workers. We must never forget. – Carole , Takoma Park, MD   5 Apr 2018

good information – anonymous, anonymous   16 Mar 2018

On March 25th each year there is a memorial at the corner of Greene St. and Washington Place. The enormous march up 5th Avenue in 1911 was a springboard for the ultimately successful movement toward workplace safety. On March 26th this year there will be a historic march in Washington, DC to end another workplace scourge: rapid-fire violence. The parallels between the two tragedies of Triangle Shirtwaist and Stoneham Douglas are emerging. Each event was preceded by a blockade against reform led by entrenched interests. I believe that there will be an unraveling of this blockade in 2018 just as there was back in 1911. Another person named Marx once quipped that history may not repeat itself, but it often rhymes. – Kenneth Marx MD, Washington Square West New York, NY   10 Mar 2018
