Storyline

The story of a fire in the Triangle Shirt Mfg. Co. building in New York City in 1911 that resulted in the deaths of 146 employees, mostly young women. The ensuing investigation revealed the company's almost total disregard for its workers' safety in pursuit of increased production and profits, and resulted, among other things, in the passage of new worker safety laws and the formation of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union.

A little slow, but good overall
31 December 1998 | by (Summerville, SC) – See all my reviews

Though the populous of this board doesn't agree with me, I liked this movie. I saw it in my Social Studies class. Mr. Pelton tied it in with Immigration. But hey, at least it's better than class work.
