Equal Pay Day
Details:

Equal Pay Day is the symbolic day dedicated to raising awareness of the gender pay gap. This date symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year, the exact day differs both by year and by country.  Because women earn less, on average, than men, they must work longer for the same amount of pay. The wage gap is even greater for most women of color.

International Worker’s Day
Details:

International Workers’ Day, also known as Labour Day and May Day, is a celebration of labourers and the working classes. May Day has been acknowledged for more than a century and is an annual observance and celebration of the achievements of the trade union movement including the establishment of employment standards, occupational health and safety legislations, and old age security. While commemorating the hard-won victories of working people and the labour movement is important, May Day is also an annual reminder that the struggle remains as the impact of globalization can only be contested by heightened international solidarity.
