What our visitors are saying...

All working class people can learn from the sacrifices made and lives lost, being dedicated to ensuring that greedy industry moguls are not allowed to treat their employees like expendable machines. We can enjoy our weekends and free time because they fought and because Roosevelt, being a progressive president, would not be bullied by the powerful industries. This is why we have the federal regulatory departments that continually work to protect us.It's wonderful to know that these young people, gone too soon, did not die in vain. – Matt G., Houston, TX 6/12/16 14:18

The story and comments said by Louis Waldman brought tears to my eyes. Legislation has brought about many changes to our system, but even now the intention to set good working conditions for employees is still absent in many places. – MR, Abu Dhabi 6/8/16 5:49

so sad this happened – AS, VA 6/7/16 13:49

My great grandparents were in their 40s when their daughter died in this tragedy. I can't picture what it was likefor them to come to America for a new life and to lose a daughter like this soon thereafter.I regret not learning about my great-aunt from my grandmother and her siblings and not talking aboutwhat the loss of their sister did to them and to their parents.May the victims' memory be a blessing. – ms, NY 6/7/16 13:07
