This is before the fire

146 employees of the Triangle Shirtwaist Company were dead the night of March 25, 1911.

Improved SafetyMany of the workers died because of unsafe conditions, like the doors being locked, a malfunctioning fire escape, and a lack of water sources.

Improved Working ConditionsThe fire, led to laws being made that ensured workers got fair pay and hours, that children were limited in the amount of work they could do, and workers had ways to address their complaints.

The Triangle Shirtwaist fire made the people recognize the hazards of working in factories. Now there are laws to protect the workers and to make sure they are safe. Because those laws are now in place, fourteen and 15 year olds may not work more than three hours a day and 18 hours a week and many safety precautions are in place. They now get fair pay and appropriate hours. And because of the fire, workers don't have to wonder how much their next pay check will be because they aren't being charged for needles, thread, or electricity.
