Terry Riban, 54, waved miniature American flags as she marched with Cement Masons Local 502. She’s been a cement worker for about 30 years and was the first woman in her union to receive a 20-year gold pin for her work.

“I feel a real sense of pride. It’s exciting to see all the neighbors coming out to watch us,” she said. “It’s important to celebrate Labor Day and educate people on the importance of work, earning a living and taking care of their families.”

Gerardo Sanchez, 60, watched the parade from a black folding lawn chair with the words “Laborers Local 1001” stitched on the back.

A longtime employee of the city’s Department of Streets and Sanitation, Sanchez said he wanted to show his support for the city’s union workers.

Mr. Trump has pointed to Mrs. Clinton’s noticeably scant schedule of campaign events this summer to suggest she has been hiding from the public. But Mrs. Clinton has been more than accessible to those who reside in some of the country’s most moneyed enclaves and are willing to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to see her. In the last two weeks of August, Mrs. Clinton raked in roughly $50 million at 22 fund-raising events, averaging around $150,000 an hour, according to a New York Times tally.

And while Mrs. Clinton has faced criticism for her failure to hold a news conference for months, she has fielded hundreds of questions from the ultrarich in places like the Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard, Beverly Hills and Silicon Valley.

  1. So we seem to have a choice for president. Elect the clown and destroy the entire planet. (Yeah, he will definitely push that button.) Elect the Hill and destroy what is left of the middle class. No matter how she talks about reform on Wall St., making the wealthy pay their fair share obviously means paying her campaign now so that they won’t have to pay later. It’s enough to make land in Canada start to look like the best choice. Because of hockey, I almost know the words to Oh Canada.

  2. Why Canada? Really, why Canada? I’ve mentioned moving to Canada myself if Trump is elected, but I really don’t know why. Close enough to the U.S. but different? The American dollar is worth more there? I don’t know if it would actually be so easy to move to Canada. There’s a rating scale for people who want to immigrate there, based on skills and education. It helps if you are bringing a lot of money with you.
