The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire on March 25, 1911 was the deadliest workplace fire in New York City's history. The factory, located in New York's Greenwich Village, quickly consumed the congested loft as petrified workers -- mostly young immigrant non women -- desperately tried to make their way downstairs. By the time the fire burned itself out, 146 people were dead. All but 17 of the dead were women and nearly half were teenagers. Issues with the garment industry, unions, and the Women's Suffrage movement are part of this video.
