Even after the fire, the city's businesses continued to insist they could regulate themselves, but the deaths clearly demonstrated that companies like Triangle, if left to their own devices, would not concern themselves with their workers' safety.
Injured workers, like Sumaya, who left Nischintapur soon after the fire were never accounted for. Many workers who are now developing symptoms either do not associate them with the fire, or are unable to prove it in order to obtain compensation.
