Bangladesh tea production hit by protests

Tea workers, who earn $5 a week, decry working conditions and say they are struggling to survive.

    Bangladesh used to be one of the world's largest exporters of tea, but production is now nearly non-existent.

    That's because workers, who are paid only $5 a week, are barely making ends meet. They are protesting against their low pay and poor working conditions.
