The numbers are in and, according to the federal government, the trucking industry has one of the lowest percentages of women in the workforce. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women made up 46.8 percent of all laborers 16 years or older in 2015. But, of the more than 2 million workers in the trucking industry, only 11.4 percent were female. The most recent survey shows that women constitute just 5.1 percent of truck drivers -- the smallest percentage since 2011.
But, change is in the air.
