Question description

  1. The common sense workplace regulations and reforms that eventually became law were sought by the progressives for nearly a decade, yet nothing occurred until after this tragedy.  Please describe working conditions in the United States at the turn of the 20th century.  Why were these conditions allowed to exist?
  2. Between 1905 and 1920, there was an average of 2,000 fatalities per year in the coal mining industry. Regulation of that industry did not take shape until the 1950's. What regulations were put into effect as a result of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire? What role do you think gender played, if any, in influencing the need to reform working conditions as a consequence of the Triangle tragedy?
  3. What lessons can be learned today from studying the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire? In your response, please discuss what responsibility, if any, businesses and government have to the working classes (please use specific examples to defend your position)
