Job satisfaction is important for better performance. This research paper shows the various factors affect job satisfaction. To find the actual facts 50 respondents are selected randomly from Meghna Textiles Mills Ltd., Tongi Industrial Area, Gazipur, Dhaka for collecting data. A structured interview schedule is used to collect data. Brayfield-Rothe scale was used for measuring job satisfaction. 10 variables like proper supervision, recognition for good work, payment, promotional opportunities, work environment, proper increment, participation in decision making, allowances and bonus are selected as independent variables and job satisfaction of the workers is selected as dependent variable. The result of the study shows that significantly higher number of workers are dissatisfied with their job than those who are satisfied with their job. The results indicate that age and experiences are negatively correlated with job satisfaction. The industrialists can be benefited by reducing job dissatisfaction which will lead to higher performance and better industrial relation in the country. Changes should be made to get better performance by the workers for the betterment of the current situation of industries in Bangladesh.]
