This cartoon was published Friday, September 14, 2018, in The Costa Rica Star.
When I drew this cartoon, I knew a lot of the country wasn’t really being affected by the strike. Most of the attention was in the capital and other larger cities. That may have changed this week, and I think I kinda hit it with my latest cartoon (which I’ll post here next week).
I can commiserate with strikers. I believe in the U.S. labor movement. A lot of the laws we have today for workers are because of unions. But, I’m not sure they’re going about it the right way in Costa Rica where they’re arguing against more taxes in a nation that’s deep in debt.
Your support in the form of donations is appreciated. I am fully independent as I’m not employed by a newspaper or with a major syndicate (leaving one to be independent). It does take a lot of work to provide you with cartoons, columns, and videos almost every day (more than any other political cartoonist), and I don’t charge my clients much at all. If you can, please consider making a financial contribution to keep the fun flowing, or purchase a signed print for $40. Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!!
Watch me draw.
