What history is this film revising?
I wondered that myself. Of course, given the current climate, I'm sure there are those that think the owners of the factory were benevolent clones of Jesus whom the workers took advantage of, stuffed into the factory that they'd sabotaged to make management look bad, and then burned the managers alive, concocting a story that they, the workers, had perished instead.
I'm sure that most of those people who think that way would be glad to hear that the Factory owners were acquitted of any wrongdoing and were awarded tens of thousands of dollars in compensation by their insurance company
BTW: They actually made a profit on that particular day, because the insurance paid them 0 a worker and they only paid the families in damages, AND got to claim the merchandise at a loss.
Oh, and both owners went home in their chauffeured cars, and ran over two separate children on their way. And then the wife of one of them ran over a THIRD child later that evening.
I heard they had their butlers piss into the ashes and force feed it to geese, then they shot the geese and burned them too.
Can't see how this is revisionist, the shop owners DID lock the exit doors... though they didn't lock the windows as shown here, which meant that several dozen girls leapt out of the windows to their death to escape the flames.
My Google advertisement is "Preventing Unionization"
Sometimes, I wonder if the owning class won't be happy until they goad the working class into an outright revolution.
