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!
