Hi I'm Levin's counterpart here and I'm going to walk you through the Industrial Revolution and The Triangle waist Fire
Lets introduce the characters
Immigrants from all over the world went to America cities for a new opportunity. They were the main labor force of America and helped cities grow.
The big corporate companies hired immigrants as a source of labor. Most of them were determined and worked hard so they exploited this and made their lives miserable so they could get more profit.
Labor Unions formed to get better working conditions. The unions we will be talking about will be the local 25(workers) and the white coat mink Brigade(rich women that gave the local 25 money to survive).
Now last but not least(in ego),the politicians who created the laws that will eventually lead to better working conditions.Some of them were corrupt(like the Tammy Hall) while other support workers.
It all started with 2 men called Max Blanck and Isaac Harris. They were both factory workers but with some luck,ruthlessness, and smart thinking they became factory owners themselves.
