How Many Triangle Fires Must There Be?
Today is Workers' Memorial Day in Philadelphia. This morning, hundreds of union activists, OSHA officials and family members of workers killed on the job broke bread, marched, offered condolences and pledged to work harder to make jobs safer. We remembered the first responders in West, Texas killed by a fertilizer plant explosion, the hundreds of garment workers killed in a garment factory collapse in Bangladesh, and the 147 from our tri-state area killed at work last year. As Mother Jones famously said, "Mourn for the dead; fight like hell for the living." Rest in peace, sisters and brothers.
