9781592131747: The Triangle Fire, the Protocols of Peace, and Industrial Democracy in Progressive Era New York (Labor in Crisis)

America searched for an answer to The Labor Question during the Progressive Era in an effort to avoid the unrest and violence that flared so often in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. In the ladies' garment industry, a unique experiment in industrial democracy brought together labor, management, and the public. As Richard Greenwald explains, it was an attempt to square free market capitalism with ideals of democracy to provide a fair and just workplace. Led by Louis Brandeis, this group negotiated the Protocols of Peace. But in the midst of this experiment, 146 mostly young, immigrant women died in the Triangle Factory Fire of 1911. As a result of the fire, a second, interrelated experiment, New York's Factory Investigating Commission (FIC)OColed by Robert Wagner and Al SmithOCocreated one of the largest reform successes of the period. "The Triangle Fire, the Protocols of Peace, and Industrial Democracy in Progressive Era New York" uses these linked episodes to show the increasing interdependence of labor, industry, and the state. Greenwald explains how the Protocols and the FIC best illustrate the transformation of industrial democracy and the struggle for political and economic justice."

America searched for an answer to The Labor Question during the Progressive Era in an effort to avoid the unrest and violence that were the rule in the early 20th Century. In the ladies garment industry, an experiment in industrial democracy brought together labor, management the public. Led by Louis Brandeis, a group of industrial democrats sought to solve the labor problem through a labor agreement, the Protocols of Peace. In the midst of this experiment, 146 mostly young, immigrant women died in the Triangle Factory Fire of 1911. As a result of the Fire, New York s Factory Investigating Commission, lead by Robert Wagner and Al Smith, created one of the largest reform successes of the period.

But both events were connected by a developing ideology called industrial democracy, which sought to solve the labor problems facing America. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9781592131747
