In this Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013 photo, Bangladeshi man Ansar, who uses one name, wails holding photographs of his wife and daughter at his home near the gutted Tazreen factory on the outskirts of Dhaka, Bangladesh. 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. The fire drew international attention to the conditions that garment workers toil under in Bangladesh, where the $20 billion-a-year textile industry is incredibly powerful and politically connected.
