During the parade through Manhattan on September 5th 1882, many banners were carried reflecting the range of interests of the participants.
Some were unifying generic slogans reflecting the fact that it was a labor march, for example:Among these were:
All Men Are Born Equal
Labor Creates All Wealth
Labor pays all taxes
Others focused on the need of labor to organize itself into a political force:
Vote for the Labor Ticket
The True remedy is Organization and the Ballot
Agitate, Educate, Organize
A further group sought to promote particular issues:
Pay No Rent
8 hours to Constitute a Day’s Work
Who Stole the Tenement House Reform Bill?
Abolish Convict Labor
