Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, and her running mate, Senator Tim Kaine spoke in Cleveland Monday at the 45th annual Labor Day event.

A protest group disrupted Clinton about one minute in and police escorted them out. 

Clinton also said she was battled allergies. 

In her speech, Clinton focused on what she wants to do for the American worker and working families.

"We are going to yes to standing up for workers rights, yes to good jobs and benefits. And yes to the American Dream. It's big enough for everyone," Clinton said. 

Clinton told the crowd, an estimated three-thousand people,  her priority as a candidate for president is to build an economy that works for everyone.

She championed union workers and discussing plans to support the working American family. 

"Paid family day, earned sick days, affordable child care, and finally guaranteeing equal pay for women's work," she said. 

The Presidential hopeful wrapped up her speech by telling the crowd she wants to work for a better tomorrow.

"That creates opportunities for every single man woman and child," Clinton said.
