Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it. I’m thinking these scenes are going to make a return someday in the not-to-distant future.
Is there even a manufacturing industry left in the US where demand is high enough to warrant a 54 hour week?
If you’re interested in manufacturing history and textiles of this era (or just social history in general) I recommend David von Drehle’s book Triangle, about the Triangle factory fire and what led up to it/came of it.
