The richest woman in the World Calling for Lower Wages…

Gina Rinehart is the richest woman in the world and now she’s telling people to work for $2 because that’s what she believes African’s get paid. She blames people taking higher wages for Austrailia’s slowing economy, but this is ridiculous. If Australian’s start earning only $2 a day they won’t be able to spend money freely let alone pay taxes and spending is what an economy thrives on.

This video also seems to hint that Australia’s citizens are lazy (when she says ‘African’s are willing to work’), surely we should be trying to up wages where they are really low instead of using them as a source of inspiration?

If I was Australia I would be appalled by this point of view she earns $600 a second why does she not give a day’s worth of her pay each week? That would give the economy a real boost.
