According to the National Committee on Pay Equity, Equal Pay Day is April 5th, 2017 or the second Tuesday in April each year.  Employees are encouraged to wear red to work to raise awareness of how far ‘in the red’ women and minorities are in term of equal pay.

Equal Pay Day was originated by the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) in 1996 as a public awareness event to illustrate the gap between men’s and women’s wages.

On previous Equal Pay Days, grassroots organizing on fair pay swept local communities. Women’s business and professional associations, labor groups, civil rights organizations and others committed to equal pay coordinated activities to raise awareness about how to solve wage inequity.
