Ironic Labor Day Cartoon

Sign Carriers on Stike

Here all this time, I thought Labor Day was sort of an ironic name that indicated that we should do the opposite of laboring. We should wake up late, fire up the grill and watch our weird uncle sit in the same camping chair (he brings his own) for hours and hours while downing the world's beer supply, one 12 ounce bottle at a time. 

Come to find out, according to the government website , "The History of Labor Day"   

"Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country."

So yeah, I guess I was kinda right all along. Celebrate on, brothers and sisters of Labor. It's back to work tomorrow!
