‘Equal pay day’ this year is April 14; the next ‘equal occupational fatality day’ will be on July 29, 2027 – AEI | Carpe Diem Blog » AEIdeas

Based on the most recent BLS data, the next “Equal Occupational Fatality Day” will occur about 13 years from now ­­– on July 29, 2027. That date symbolizes how far into the future women will be able to continue working before they experience the same estimated loss of life that men will experience in 2014 from work-related deaths. Because women tend to work in safer occupations than men on average, they have the advantage of being able to work for more than a decade longer than men before they experience the same number of male occupational fatalities in a single year.
