Gina Rinehart is the worlds richest woman, a mining mogul with a net worth of over 18 Billion Dollars according to Forbes. She is from Australia and controls one of the richest iron ore resources in the world. She must have never gone to kindergarten because she never learned how to share. A recent talk to the Sydney Mining Club she stated

“Africans want to work. Its workers are willing to work for less than $2 per day.”
More on the story after the jump.

You can read the whole story here. She also recently said about the rich and poor:

If you're jealous of those with more money... spend less time drinking, or smoking and socialising and more time working
This reminds me of an article I read recently at theAmericanConservative.com where even they state that the rich are more concerned about themselves than national policies. The article starts out with this nugget:
“The rich elites of this country have far more in common with their counterparts in London, Paris, and Tokyo than with their fellow American citizens.”
The lowest common denominator for wages, the highest profits for the one percent.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
