    Gina Rinehart calls for Australian wage cut

    Gina Rinehart has criticised her country's economic performance and said Africans willing to work for $2 a day should be an inspiration. Link with Video
    $2-AUD a day might be fine in Africa where relative costs are low but I can't see many Australians falling over themselves to work for $2 - especially while Ms Rinehart is rolling in the billions.

    Bet her speech went down like a lead balloon - would you work in the US or Europe for the equivalent of $2 AUD a day?

    Woh now hold on.

    $2 a day is perfectly acceptable if you're willing to live off 1 meal a day off the Mcdonalds Value meal and it's a 24/7 Mcdonalds so you can sleep there and wake up to work there the next day

    Gina The Hutt might want to spend a little more time exercising her body parts rather than running her mouth...
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    I take it you wouldn't be inspired by the African salary of $2 a day then..

    Re: Gina Rinehart calls for Australian wage cut

    I didnt see this thread and I posted this again...the mods will find it and delete it im sure....

    This woman gives real meaning to my favorite descrptions of corporatists...as pigs at the trough...she expects australians to bust their arse all day in a mine for 2.00 a day and starve to death in an australian economy so she could be richer ? shes a disgusting human being and deserves nothing less than total ridicule

    Proves again that the only bulwark against the rich riding roughshod over people is the law.

    That this woman would suggest Australians step back a century in standard of living ought to make even her super-rich friends pause.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    People like here are why we need minimum wage laws.

    Bet her speech went down like a lead balloon
    That is not a good expression because lead balloons can float.

    MythBusters Episode 96: Lead Balloon
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
