A new memorial to the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire reminds us of labor history

Names engraved in a metal overhang section of the Triangle Shirtwaist Memorial, wrapping the first story of New York University's biology building, are shown reflected in mirroring panels along a sidewalk, Tuesday Oct. 10, 2023, in New York. The building is the site where 146 people, mostly immigrant girls and women, were killed in a 1911 clothing factory fire. (Bebeto Matthews/AP)
