Just Another Day

Saturday, March 25, 1911

It's a beautiful spring morning and you're ready to start the day right at your new job. You immigrated to the United States a year ago, blessed to find work sewing for the Triangle Shirtwaist Company. You work seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in a stuffy room crammed with girls just like you. Though pay could be better (you're currently making about $6 a week), your savings have been growing. You hope to someday book a passage to America for your family. Enough daydreaming. It's time to get to work.
