Equal Occupational Fatality Day

CARPE DIEM has an excellent post up today recounting, once again, the myth of the lack equality in wages between men and women. This post explicitly details the discrepancy in on the job deaths between men and women. Here's a small excerpt:
The next "Equal Occupational Fatality Day" is Sunday October 11, 2020. This date symbolizes how far into the future women are expected to work to experience the same loss of life from work-related deaths that men experienced in just the single year 2008 (4,703 deaths for men compared to only 368 for women), according to BLS data (see chart above).
Do yourself a favor and add CARPE DIEM as a daily read. Also, be sure to go read the rest of the post!
