57 Workers Suspended Without Pay for Role in Protests in Bahrain

In another example of repercussions of protesting the regime in Bahrain, 57 workers were suspended without pay for their role in protests across the country. As workers are continually punished for their role in democracy protests, it will only incite anger against the regime and fan the flames of protest.

Geopolitically, attacks like these make it harder for the United States to remain friendly and supportive of the Bahrain regime. Continued attacks against laborers will draw into question the free trade agreement the Bahraini government has with the U.S. With a rapidly shrinking economy, Bahrain cannot afford to lose trade ties with the West.
