“I am pleased to join my colleagues in commemorating the 100th anniversary of the tragic Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. This event, which took the lives of 146 garment workers all women, marked the most vivid symbol of the need for workplace safety rules. It also started the movement to fight for safer working conditions. The need for workplace safety and ending working sweatshops continues today. As a people we must remain vigilant to ensure that a similar tragedy never happens again.”
