Richest woman to save economy, end poverty with plan

The world's richest woman wants to pay you $2 a day, so you too can be a millionaire, just like her. Speaking at the Australian Mining Club, Gina Rinehart said that Australia's mining industry can't compete with nations that pay less than $2 a day for work. 

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (Catholic Online) - Times are tough for job creators, all over the world, and that includes Australian mining baroness Gina Rinehart who struggled to earn her $18 billion fortune by inheritance. 

Referring to conditions in Africa, Rinehart suggested that wages in Australia were much too high and that eliminating minimum wage restrictions could help make the mining industry more competitive. "Africans want to work," she told members. "And it's workers are willing to work for less than two dollars per day. Such statistics make me worry for this country's future." 

Rinehart has previously suggested that the poor should "spend less time drinking, smoking, and socializing and more time working." 

Naturally, the communist sympathizing Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, turned her nose up at this sound fiscal advice, selflessly offered by a courageous capitalist. "It's not the Australian way to toss people $2, to toss them a gold coin, and then ask them to work for a day. We support proper Australian wages and decent working conditions." 

Of course, Rinehart has only the poor on her mind in her vision of a capitalist utopia that would make Ayn Rand blush. ""There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire. If you're jealous of those with more money don't just sit there and complain, do something to make more money yourself."

Rinehart has a point. If a poor person is truly dedicated and works hard for $2 per day, and they manage to diligently save that income without squandering it on booze or cigarettes, they too could become a millionaire in only 1,369 year's time!

Get to work, you lazy bums.
