The four themes of both 2011 and 1911:
In 1911, the four themes were exemplified by:
-Infrastructure. The Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire that killed 134 women and children, led to workplace safety rules such as the 40 hour week and specifically building codes (the electrical building code association is a member of LERN)
-More Education. Educators advocated for some of the 60 hour work week be allocated to school for children, which eventually became universal high school.
-Democracy. The suffragettes took to the streets, and the jails, much like protesters in 2011.
-Wealth Inequality. Like today, CEOs made 400 times what an average worker did. In 1911, there were actually 400 wealthy families that had parties, a symbol of the wealth and power of just a few individuals.
