The world's richest woman thinks you're paid too much9/5/2012
The world's richest woman wants to cut your pay. Australian mining magnate Gina Rinehart, who's sitting on a $30 billion fortune (thanks in part to a hefty inheritance) and makes an estimated $600 per second, has followed up her recent suggestion that if you’re not wildly rich like her, it's because you're a lazy bum who smokes and drinks too much. Now she also claims you're being paid too much. In a recent speech, Rinehart said she's worried that Australian workers’ pesky penchant for fair wages is keeping the country from being globally competitive. After all, she notes, "Africans want to work, and its workers are willing to work for less than $2 per day." Nice. [Source]
