The work was also dangerous with not much supervising by the government. Workers, on the other hand, had little or even no bargaining power to leave the unsafe conditions. Nowadays, When Americans only pay attention when extreme work strike, levels of abuse are the norm hidden in the factories around the globe. Although the condition seems much improved, consumers don’t know the true fact- “Today, American citizens simply cannot know the working conditions of the factories that make the products they buy.

The police than fired on the crowd, killing several people and wounding one hundred people,” The Haymarket affair was horrible because it gave the employers more leverage on the workers because the could use the Haymarket affair as a weapon to keep employees in line.

When Dally hurt his arm trying to save Johnny and Ponyboy from the fire he burned his arm bad enough to where he has to stay in the hospital. "he burned one arm pretty badly, though, trying to drag the other kid out the window." (81). From this quote you also see that Dally dragged Johnny out of a burning building, although it would have been a given for any of us, it shows that Dally cares enough to risk his own life. Not only did Dally save Johnny from a building and get hurt, but he then went on and fought In a rumble.

As I said the causality of this film is incredibly weak. I truly did not understand why any of the characters did anything in this film. Under no circumstances would 9-1-1 have hold music, like a customer service line. Why did Charlie never attempt to revive his mother? She made the cake, before she bathed and it burned at least an hour after Charlie got there, so she couldn’t have been dead long.
The longest ladders only reached the seventh and the fire nets were useless to the girls who were falling from over 100 feet above. Several of the girls jumping were already on fire, demonstrating that there was only the choice to jump or burn to death.

The elevator shaft was clogged with at least thirty more bodies, most burned beyond recognition; in the ninth floor workroom
Some have medical issues, mental issues, and emotional issues. The citizens of New York were affected severely by the event that happened on September 11, 2001. Out of the 2,606 people that died in the World Trade Center, 1,762 were residents of New York (Statistic Brain Research Institue).

Just earlier this very year, there was a horrible fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory where 146 workers perished. Some died from the fire and others from jumping from the windows in order to escape it. Triangle Shirtwaist has brought the plight of these poor workers to the forefront as the public takes notice of the lack of safety measures in place at not just this factory, but many similar workplaces, and demands that something be done to prevent such a tragedy from occurring again.

The regulations themselves should not be just broad, but address the many issues that workers face in order to give the workers the safest and healthiest working environment possible.
