Default world's richest woman thinks ppl envious of the rich should whine less & work harder

Quote:
Australian billionaire Gina Rinehart, the world's richest woman, has told Australians envious of rich people that they should stop complaining, work harder, and cut down on drinking, smoking and socializing.

The controversial mining magnate, who also called for Australia's minimum wage of of $606.40 a week to be lowered, said billionaires and millionaires did more than anyone to help the poor by investing their money and creating jobs.

According to The Australian newspaper, Rinehart — who inherited mining tenements from her mining magnate father that are now worth $30.1 billion — wrote in her regular column in Australian Resources and Investment magazine that:

"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 — spend less time drinking or smoking and socializing, and more time working. Become one of those people who work hard, invest and build, and at the same time create employment and opportunities for others."

You're just jealous.

And complaining instead of working.

So if you want to get rich you should work hard? Such a revolutionary idea. I might try it.

There is an alternative though. Is she married?

That is the Cuban ideology: "The world will be much better off when nobody is rich".

PS When you are such a mysogynistic imbecile as to describe someone with the word c-ú-n-t, the emphasis is definitely on u.

Nobody is going to work hard if they can't provide for their children. That is human nature. No amount of socialism can change that. And as I understand it, she vastly increased her inheritance. Well done, ma'am, in a man's world.
Similarly, no-one is going to work hard if they think the government will take from the producers of wealth and give handouts to them.

The term is used by the lowest level of society, yes. And footballers. It has nothing to do with PC, but with education and manners.

Well, many would also like to inherit mines that they could vastly increase Of course, nobody is saying that she should give her wealth to the poor, but she should shut up about advices nobody asked for.

BTW, this is another Mugbraxas whining topic, NID.

I would agree with her, if she said "get yourself some education".

But that would also show the weak part of her argument.
Apart from factors like strength, intelligence and creativity, which are for sure not given to all human beings in the same amount, a society in which everyone is creative and runs their own buisness would probably fail, because to be successfull you will have to have those who produce and just make the work other planned.

If these people earn minimal wage they may work harder and harder but it doesn´t get them rich, the way she pretents.

Furthermore there are a lot of low paid jobs that are important for a society, that simply have to be made: nurses in a hospital/old people´s home, taking care of small children, cleaning personal in any factory/household/official building, police, guards.

I´d rather not tell a nurse who just had a 12-hour shift that she should work harder. I might have to suffer from her tiredness when I need her the most.

Some people are rich not because they are succesful but because someone in their family is/was (parents, grandparents etc.) and these people desserve every bit of that money as much as those who work hard for it, simply because it was passed on to them, as much as it pisses people off, they have to deal with it, some people are rich, they were luckier in life, deal with it and move on.

I don't take issue with self-interest or the condescending tone. However, the idea that job creation is a gift bestowed upon the plebs and society in general, as some kind of quasi-altruistic act is quite ridiculous. Wages - pay for labour - is a trade not benevolence conferred upon workers. The capitalist wet dream that is Atlas Shrugged has a correspondingly scenario where the labourers abdicate and play bloody revolution instead and the scenario has actually taken place unlike those dreamed up by Ayn Rand (see world history). I wouldn't put money on the wealthiest lot "abdicating" where they can dictate all the terms of the contract and where more wealth can be idly amassed but then I am no writer of fiction. There are businesses that can uproot and be based anywhere, then there are mining and oil and gas industries where you hire where your assets are. If you could lower costs by automating and replacing workers it'd happen in a second. She has a right to say these things and then people have a right to respond; then others would rather focus on "manners" and "oh my god the c-word", anyway the quote is just tone-deaf to me although I'm sure extremely useful advice in her mind. The world is as is accept it or take some antidepressants or hallucinatorys, sound about right?

most of the people who are rich had actually rich or well off parents.

it's ridiculous to hear them talking about their efforts, sacrifices, work ethic and whatnot when their circumstances were much different from the ones that are faced everyday by the poorest segments of society.

as for the case of this "lady", if it were up to me, i'd confiscate her wealth and make her work for minimum wage cleaning toilets.

let's see how hard she works then.

You just hate that people can create wealth, that is your problem.

But in Western civilization we don't ''make'' anybody work at a particular job. We leave that kind of nonsense to the failed socialist states.
