In Bangladesh, echoes of 1911 Triangle fire in NYC

FILE - In this March 1911 file photo, family members try to identify the dead victims of the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire of March 25, 1911 in New York. One hundred years ago, horrified onlookers watched as workers leapt to their deaths from the raging fire in the garment factory. The fire killed 146 workers, mainly young immigrant women and girls, and became a touchstone for the organized labor movement, spurred fire-safety laws and shed light on the lives of immigrant workers.
