Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Memorial Offers Scholarship Fund

This month marks the 100th anniversary of the most deadly workplace disaster until September 11th – The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire.  On March 25, 1911, 146 men and women, mostly young immigrants perished in this fire.  Doors had been locked to keep workers in, fire ladders couldn’t reach beyond the fourth floor and amazingly just the week before the Highest Court in NY had struck down the radical legislation know as Workers’ Compensation.

Triangle is but the beginning place to remember and act. Brian Mittman, Managing Partner of Markhoff & Mittman is a proud sponsor and Director of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Memorial –  an organization which provides scholarships to the children of workers who have been permanently disabled or killed during the course of work.  If you know someone who is the child of a permanently injured worker and is looking for financial help with college PLEASE tell them about The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Over the past ten years this fund has provided over $264,000.00 in scholarships. In fact, for the 2010-2011 academic year they have awarded twenty-three Triangle Scholars and look forwarded to making a difference in many more lives.

Testimonial

They kept my best interests at heart. Updates on a regular basis of the status of the case and returning of calls was much more prompt after I started dealing with the same lawyers and support team.
