This Monday, March 21, 2011 at 9 pm HBO is airing a movie about the Triangle Shirt Waist Factory fire which, as you know, gave birth to the modern labor movement. (It will also be aired at other times). I saw excerpts played at the NYS Bar Assoc Labor and Employment Law annual meeting and it looked excellent. I thought you might be interested in watching.
Workers United (formerly ILGWU) is also having a number of events this Friday, March 25th (the 100th anniversary) in Washington Square Park, NYC which is where the fire occurred. The building still stands and is owned by NYU. Unfortunately, I have a hearing-otherwise I would be there.
