trg operates within the Logistics Sector essentially supplying qualified drivers to a number of its major clients. The majority of drivers within trg hold a HGV class 1 and or 2 license.

The difference between men and women:

Using a mean average, Women earn 27.38% less than men due to women mainly undertaking drivers mates and admin roles whereas men are mainly undertaking driver roles which attracts a higher rate of pay.

Using a median average, Women earn 21.91% less for the reasons indicated above.

Across the business using a median average, men earn 32.87% more than women.

I confirm the data reported is accurate.
