A horrific fire occurred at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in 1911.  A museum provides displays about the fire and organized labor’s early attempts to achieve their goals. The displays stated that unions were not successful in their efforts to obtain their goals. It was hinted that other factors in society led to union successes.

Go to the Kheel Center for Labor-Management at Cornell University: http://www.ilr.cornell.edu/trianglefire/Links to an external site.  Look at the reproductions of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire in 1911.  The most impactful sections for me was when I clicked on “Read the story of the fire” – “Victims & Witnesses,” and “Explore a model of the 9th floor.”  Spend time perusing the website and reading the various sections.  Attach to this assignment 3-4 paragraphs (150 WORDS MINIMUM) as to what you believe to be the “other factors” that helped unions become successful.  Use Times New Roman 12-point font, double spaced, 1″ margins.  Include your name, BA108 – Assignment 1, and the date on the top of the first page (you do not need a separate title page).
