12 Labor Day Memes That’ll Lift Your Spirits Even If You Have To Work

It's Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of summer. Hopefully you're enjoying time off from the daily grind, and spending your weekend with family, friends, or Netflix. Whatever your jam, sum up what it feels like to have a Monday off work by sharing these Labor Day 2017 memes. Because, I think we can all agree that Mondays are the worst. If you're one of the lucky people who has permission to skip out of the office this Monday as a reward for all of your hard work, these Labor Day memes are for you.

It's been a tough year. Dumpster fire is the only term I can think of to appropriately describe 2017. Between the damage the Trump administration has caused to the immigrant, transgender, LGBTQ, and myriad other communities, and natural disasters like Hurricane Harvey, it's important to laugh to keep from crying (in addition to standing up for human rights everywhere). While you might not feel like laughing or celebrating this Labor Day weekend, finding joy during times of turmoil can help you keep your spirits up, and strengthen your resolve to keep resisting.

If you need a little laugh this Labor Day, whether it's because you're one of millions of people who doesn't have the day off, or you're feeling the stress of 2017 weighing on you, a little Labor Day meme fun can go a long way.
