Bloomberg booed at today's Triangle Shirtwaist ceremony

See video below of today's ceremony commemorating the 100th anniversary of the fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist factory in Greenwich village. It was the deadliest industrial disaster in the city's history, in which more than a hundred seamstresses, most of them very young, died from the fire or jumped to their deaths when the exits were blocked. The disaster led to legislation requiring improved safety standards and working conditions.

The Mayor, by proposing the layoffs of thousands of teachers, most of them women, and the elimination of all seniority protections, is increasingly recognized as the enemy of labor rights and was appropriately booed. Meanwhile, his approval rating has fallen to its lowest level in eight years.
