New York City marks 100th anniversary of deadly factory fire.
The centennial commemoration of the Triangle shirtwaist factory fire became a rally for organized labor Friday, as hundreds marched and vowed to resist efforts to weaken unions in state capitals across the country. Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer drew loud cheers when he pledged to fight “right wing ideologues” trying to curb worker protections.
The Democratic Senator says New Jersey Governor Christie's decision to pull the plug on the Trans-Hudson Rail Project was a huge mistake.
It's been three months since New Jersey Governor Chris Christie nixed the ARC rail tunnel project, and New York State Senator Chuck Schumer is pushing to get the project back in the works.
