Two months after his wife and daughter were killed in a fire at the Bangladeshi garment factory, 55-year-old Ansar is scrambling to survive. Ansar has been unable to pay his rent for two months and fears that if he gets evicted and is forced to return to his home village in the impoverished north, he may never be compensated.

About this Article

Two months later, the same families have yet to receive any of the compensation they were promised -- not even their relatives' last paychecks.
