Factory Girls

Publisher: Lerner Publishing Group Release date: 2019-08-01

Description

The twentieth century ushered in a new world filled with a dazzling array of consumer goods. Even the poorest immigrant girls could afford a blouse or two. But these same immigrant teens toiled away in factories in appalling working conditions. Their hard work and sacrifice lined the pockets of greedy factory owners who were almost exclusively white men. The tragic Triangle Waist Factory fire in 1911 resulted in the deaths of over a hundred young people, mostly immigrant girls, who were locked in the factory.Told from the perspective of six young women who lived the story, this book reminds us why what we buy and how we vote really matter.
