James Larkin: From a Docker to Trade Union Leader

Fondly known as Big Jim, James Larkin was an Irish unionist who carved out a name for himself within the trade union movements not only in his home country of Ireland; he was a well-known trade unionist in the United States after settling in the country in 1914. Born in Liverpool slums on 21st January 1876, Mr. Larkin started working as a manual labourer at the docks in Liverpool from a young age.

At the time, dock workers were poorly paid even though they had tasking duties and worked in very poor conditions. His experience at the docks in Liverpool ignited a strong passion in him that he pursued throughout his lifetime: better and fairer working conditions for employees especially at the docks.

Towards a Socialist Working Environment

Dissatisfied with the working conditions at the docks and spurred on by strong socialism mindset, James Larkin became a member of the National Union of Dock Labourers (NUDL) to further push for better working conditions for his colleagues nationally.

He had a strong passion and conviction for the cause, which saw rise through the ranks of the organization to become a full-time trade unionist. His longstanding association with Ireland started in 1905 when he became a full-time trade unionist.

However, he moved to the country in 1907 after the head office transferred him to Dublin following dissatisfaction with his organization of strikes to force employers to yield to their demands. Read more: Jim Larkin – Biography

While in Dublin, James Larkin broadened the scope of trade union movement by looking at the big picture. In order to accommodate and champion for the interests and welfare of all Irish workers, he founded the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union (ITGWU).

Through ITGWU, James Larkin demanded for fair payment and working conditions especially for unskilled labourers. Through several strikes, the government finally yielded to some of his demands. Much of these progresses were made in partnership with James Connolly with whom he founded the Irish Labour Party.

Following his lecture tour of the United States in 1914, he joined the labour movement in the country but was later deported on charges of being a communist. His final gift to the Irish workers before his death in 1947 was the founding of Workers’ Union of Ireland (WUI) in 1924.

A helping hand for Hispanic community to fight against racial discrimination

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is a joint effort by Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin who founded Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media together. It was created to help people migrating from Latin America, residing in the United States.

The main reason behind the foundation of this organization is the incident that happened to Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin. They both were journalists living in Phoenix, Arizona who used to write and report about crimes occurring in Arizona. They were arrested from their homes one night by the sheriff of Arizona named Joe Arpaio.

He was considered as one of the toughest sheriffs of America who used to incarcerate a large number of immigrants residing illegally in Arizona. He was acknowledged by the people of Arizona as a patriotic police officer, but the truth was quite the opposite. The immigrants were not living illegally rather; it was a misconception created by Arpaio himself. He had quite a powerful influence on the people of Arizona.

But Lacey and Larkin were two courageous reporters who wanted to unravel the wrongdoings of Arpaio. So, they investigated and reported the barbarities between Hispanic community and Arpaio. They published an article in the newspaper featuring Arpaio’s misdeeds focusing on his patriarchal role, political dominance and abuse of power in Arizona.

Arpaio, who was considered very powerful couldn’t take this blow. He gave orders for the separate arrest of Lacey and Larkin. Both of them were taken into police’s custody from their homes early in the morning completely unaware of the reasons behind their arrest. They were even locked up in separate prisons and were mistreated. The right of hiring an attorney was also taken away. They were not even allowed to talk to their families.

After two days, they appeared before Arpaio. Then, they came to know that Arpaio was the reason behind their arrest. Moreover, the prisons in which they kept were also run under Arpaio’s authority.

Arpaio released them when he couldn’t build a strong and compelling case against their arrest. Lacey and Larkin then decided to take action against Arpaio. They sent a lawsuit against him for his crimes. This news spread all across the country, and people supported them for their bold step.

Lacey and Larkin eventually won the case when the court came to know that both of them were innocent. A settlement of $3.7 million was paid to them in 2013.

With the help of this money, they decided to establish the Frontera Fund whose main aim was to benefit the Hispanic community, especially Mexicans that faced racial discrimination and violation of civil rights in Arizona as both of them, were strong supporters of migrants.

Lacey and Larkin benefitted a lot of people with the help of this fund. This fund also helped those who were unable to pay for their legal proceedings. This foundation also started benefitting other nonprofit organizations who worked for the same cause.

The Future of Cloud Computing: NuoDB’s transitional database

As a technician you know that traditional databases can only do so much. SQL oriented databases can do more but NuoDB has come up with transitional databases that work well with the cloud. With any application it is important that there is a solid platform behind it. NuoDB provides that solid platform. The difference is that NuoDB has a scalable and highly flexible platform that works seamlessly with cloud applications.

All the important components of a secure transaction are there with NuoDB but with one difference. NuoDB uses a layered approach in regards to its databases. What this means is that instead of the traditional one level structure NuoDB uses a three tier structure with administrative and storage tiers in separate areas. This allows the freedom of applications to connect without the means of a disk drive. By dividing the data streams into separate tiers while still maintaining secure access to the database, NuoDB has made it easier for users to make connections and maintain their constantly evolving data streams.

The elasticity of the cloud database is maintained through NuoDB’s transitional database without compromising sensitive information. It is important to note as more companies move data into the cloud the more transitional databases will be needed.
