Larkin & Lacey

It has been drilled into our heads from the time of early childhood that “civil rights” is associated with racial minorities in the United States, especially African American people.

However, civil rights is an issue for everyone of every race, religion, personality type, gender, ethnicity, interest and place in life. One of these places in life is that of a laborer. Most human beings are laborers.

They do jobs, whether it be physically strenuous and hazardous jobs like construction and and coal mining, or white color jobs like receptionists. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Facebook

There are various types of artists, professionals, people who do physically strenuous work and customer service people. Everyone who works is at a huge risk of having their human rights crushed by employers.

There are numerous regulations that have been erected to prevent employer abuses. These regulations help, though some abusive employers slip through the cracks, unfortunately. People form unions when they want to come to together under one voice and exert weight, politically.

The number of unions is pretty large in the United States of America. Union membership is not at the same rate all over the country. For example, in places like New York, there is a lot of union activity and a large percentage of people are in unions.

In the Southern part of the United States, union membership is all the way down. Unions do exist in the South, though that area of the country has a long history of not being big with union membership. In books, they say that this is because powerful, corrupt local governments with a lot of political pull and goons kept unions out.

However, there is also reason to believe that many local residents in the South may have had a sour taste in their mouth about unions. It is pretty reasonable for people to feel like that, because on the negative side, unions tend to be very much politically charged.

Sometimes violence and conflict follows union activity. Also, when a union comes into an industry, there may be disparities between union members and non-union members, and people who want to go into unions may find it really hard to get in.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is not a labor union; it is an organization based on identity—immigrant status, race, sexual preference and sexual identity. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey give their funds to identity organizations such as Hispanic organizations, immigrant organizations and LGBTQ organizations.
