Animation Monday: 2013 Labor Day Political Cartoons

Geek Alabama Animation

Happy Labor Day 2013 everyone!  This day was created in 1894 and celebrates the workers!  It is a celebration of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers.  It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.  More than 80 countries around the globe have a Labor Day every year!  And in the United States and Canada, it’s celebrated on the first Monday of September and is the unofficial close of Summer.

Most people have a job and can celebrate Labor Day, if they are not working on the holiday.  But for the unemployed people like me, Labor Day is a day we don’t like to celebrate.  So for this Animation Monday, I am going to share some of my favorite political cartoons celebrating the unemployed on Labor Day.  Hopefully, I keep saying that this Labor Day will be the last one while jobless, but I have said that for the last three Labor Days.  Being unemployed for 26 months sucks!

  1. I enjoyed viewing your political cartoons. Man is condemened to lead a life of bitter servitude(Genesis, Chapter 3, verses 17-19). At the same time, the merciful Lord had instructed Moses:”If one of your country men becomes poor and is unable to support himself among you, help him as you would an alien or a temporary resident, so he can continue to live among you.”(Third Book of Moses, Leviticus, Chapter 25, verse 35). God’s plan for help includes those alien workers who labor on the US soil.

  2. Yep, these were cartoons for Labor Day that highlighted the unemployed like me. I hope my situation will change soon! Glad you enjoyed them!
