Remember also the 1993 Zhili Toy Factory Fire, China‚Äôs greatest fire death toll since the initiation of the Open Door Policy and the establishment of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone in 1980. Fire safety measures must be installed. Always. – Jenny Chan, Hong Kong   30 Jan 2017

Given such a tragedy and the subsequent standards created almost 100 years ago and the progression of technology, I am saddened to have read that two major U.S. cities sweatshop percentages are over 60%. – JADP, Spring Hill, TN   27 Jan 2017

A very tragic event, that in the end supported new ways of law. These people may have died, but not in vein. Today we should reflect back on what happen, and make sure it never happens again. In conclusion, the people that died should be remembered, and never forgotten. For if it weren't for them, laws may never have changed, and you might have been the one in the fire. – E.H, NC   24 Jan 2017

I'm really glad we adopted these laws from this fire. Imagine if we never had, and these fires kept happening. – grace, St. Charles   23 Jan 2017

The Triangle fire is sad and it should have never happen. – Ethan Cruz, St.Charles   13 Jan 2017

In the Triangle Fire in 1911 this had a really big impact on the U.S working conditions in jobs. It's sad to see to this day that people these day take advantage of people to give them very little money for such long hours, and for the owner to get filthy rich. If they were to once take a walk in their shoe they could really see how much bad they have done to these people. – B.O, St.Charles IL   13 Jan 2017

People really should have been more aware on the working conditions and how cheaply buildings were made. If people cared this tragic event might not have happpened – Abby, St. Charles   13 Jan 2017

This was very sad and not fair to the workers or their families. – Shannon M, Chicago IL   12 Jan 2017

This is so sad. This fire has had an important role in history, but this event isn't well known. People should know about this and recognize this sad event. :( – Isabella J, Illinois   12 Jan 2017

Although it was tragic, it made the government more aware so they put in better safety regulations so there was a positive side to this – Lane H, Chicago, IL   12 Jan 2017

This was a very powerful story. This should be used to show students the bad side of industrialization and that 146 people had died, many of them by jumping off from the 9th story to their deaths and others burning in the fire. Just imagining the idea of having to work in the same conditions as those women in that building should show how greedy the business owners were. – Ahmad Y., Saint Charles, IL   12 Jan 2017

This is a very important event even though some may say they've never heard of it. – Lily Henson, Chicago IL   11 Jan 2017

This Is Very Interesting. I Never Realized What If A Fire Started In A Big Factory. 146 People Killed Outta The 500 Working There Isn't Good. I Also Feel Bad For There Working Conditions As Narrow Hallways And Exits Locker, I Can't See That Happening. I Feel Like This Event Had A Impact On The US Now That We Have Regulations Of How To Work Factories And Not To Lock Workers In. – Jonathan M, St. Charles   11 Jan 2017

This was so sad. – Taytum N, chicago IL   11 Jan 2017
