LONDON, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- Britain's Minister for Women and Equalities, Justine Greening, launched a government online tool Friday to enable women workers to see how far they are behind male colleagues in the gender pay gap.

The online tool, created by the government's Office for National Statistics, enables workers to discover pay levels in a wide range of occupations.

The government's equalities office say eliminating work-related gender gaps in pay could add 190 billion U.S. dollars annually to Britain's GDP by 2025.

"The benefits of helping women to unlock their talents are huge. It is an opportunity that neither government nor businesses can afford to ignore," said a spokesperson at the Equalities Office.

The online tool shows construction and building trades, and financial managers and directors have the highest gender pay gaps.

It has been launched as details of how large employers will have to report their gender pay and gender bonus pay gaps from next April have been published.

The regulations, which will affect almost 8,000 employers with around 11 million employees, will shine a light on workplace practices that could be preventing women from reaching the top in their organizations.

Greening said: "Britain has the lowest gender pay gap on record. There are more women in work than ever before, more women-led businesses than ever before and there are now women on every board in the FTSE 100."

"Employers must play their part in this too and take action to tackle the gender pay gap in their organization. That's why we are requiring large employers to publish their gender pay and gender bonus pay gaps for the first time ever and our regulations mean they can start getting ready to report from April next year," she added.

The construction and building industry is shown to have the widest pay gap in favor of men at 45.4 percent, followed by financial managers and directors, where the male-female pay gap is 36.5 percent. Industries where there is already equal pay include waiters and waitresses, bar staff and fishmongers.

Thousands squeezed into Chapeco's cathedral and even more packed a stadium to mourn the death of 71 people in a plane crash Cheap Shea Weber Jersey , 19 of them members of the Chapecoense club who had been on the brink of soccer greatness.

"To lose (almost) all of them in such a tragic way, totally destroyed our city and each one of us," Carla Vilembrini said late Tuesday, standing outside Santo Antonio Cathedral. She was dressed like so many others — in the club's green and white jerseys.

Chapecoense's fantasy season ended on a muddy Colombian mountainside late Monday when a chartered aircraft crashed south of Medellin. Only six of the 77 passengers and crew survived, three of them players.

The club was having the best season in its 43-year history, heading to the first of two matches in the final of the Copa Sudamericana, the continent's No. 2 club tournament.

Distraught residents of this southern Brazilian city of 200,000 people, an agribusiness center near the Argentina border, wandered the streets around the stadium — known as Arena Conda — in stunned silence.

"The city is very quiet," businessman Cecilio Hans said. "People will only believe once the bodies start to arrive."

On social media, haunting last photos showed the smiling players boarding the flight to Colombia for their match with Atletico Nacional.

In one photo, the team celebrated a last-minute save by goalkeeper Danilo only a week ago against the Argentine club San Lorenzo. The save guaranteed Chapecoense a spot in the final — and ultimately cost Danilo his life in the crash.

"I can't still believe it," Alan Heinz said inside the stadium, his body pressed against the fence that separates fans from the field. This time the field was filled by a religious service and prayers for the dead.

"I was preparing for the best day of my life, and now I don't know what my life will be after this," he said.

As recently as 2009, the club known as Chape was playing in Brazil's fourth division, but it won promotion to the top league in 2014 for the first time since the 1970s.

Victories over San Lorenzo and Independente — two of Argentina's fiercest squads — as well as the Colombian club Junior took the team to the Copa Sudamericana finals, the equivalent of the UEFA Europa League tournament.

Few of the players had an international profile, and none had any appearances with Brazil's glitzy national team. Most had played all over Brazil and Latin America. Only a few had ever reached Europe, like Cleber Santana, who played for Atletico Madrid in 2007-10.

Chape strikers Bruno Rangel and Kempes, both 34, were among the top scorers in the Brazilian league, with 10 and nine goals, respectively.

The only players to survive were goalkeeper Jakson Follmann, defender Helio Zampier, commonly known as Neto, and defender-midfielder Alan Ruschel.

Coach Caio Junior is credited with Chape's quick rise, joining the club this year after guiding teams in the Middle East. Born Luiz Carlos Saroli, he coached numerous Brazilian teams, including Palmeiras, Flamengo and Botafogo.

He was among the dead. His son, Matheus Saroli, escaped because he didn't make the flight, saying in a Facebook post that he couldn't board "because I forgot my passport."

An Argentine player on the club, Alejandro Martinuccio, also missed the flight, because of an injury during a game, he told Argentina's La Red radio.

"I feel deep sadness. The only thing I can ask is prayers for the companions who were on the flight," he said.

Also among the dead were 20 sports journalists, including Mario Sergio Pontes de Paiva, a former player who worked as a commentator for Fox Sports. He played briefly for Brazil's national team in the early 1980s and had a long
