This paper attempts to unearth the factors underlying the poverty and social exclusion of tea garden workers in Bangladesh. Based on the empirical evidences from two tea gardens in Sylhet, the study finds that tea garden workers are inflicted with chronic poverty and are facing social exclusion. Limited access to work beyond the industry for additional income and distant geographic location forces them to be excluded from many of the social opportunities and civic services. Besides, illiteracy, poor and inadequate healthcare system and dearth of other social amenities also make them socially marginalized. However, workers miseries remain unheard for lack of collective voice.
