“Devon County Council has the biggest gender pay gap of all the councils in the South West.
A woman’s average hourly rate is 17% lower than men’s. This means they earn 83p for every £1 that men earn.

Devon County Council said that it had a high number of female part-time workers and six out of eight of its senior leadership team were women. …”
