Auchter's Art: Channel your anger elsewhere this Labor Day

illustration of 3 people making complaints about work to labor statues
John Auchter for Michigan Radio

This is really just a silly cartoon intended as a hopeful reminder that 1) it's Labor Day, 2) Labor Day is for honoring and celebrating working folks, and 3) it'd be nice to give them a break, especially a year and a half into a pandemic.

So if you find yourself upset by, say, being served some less than crispy french fries over the weekend, consider channeling your anger elsewhere. And if you can find a memorial for labor leaders of the past, that may provide some additional perspective.
