Australian Rinehart, the head of her family's iron-ore mining business, recorded a video for the Sydney Mining Club in which she says people in her country should be willing to work for $2 a day.
"Africans want to work. Its workers are willing to work for less than $2 per day," she says in the video. "We must be realistic, not just promote class warfare … Indeed, if we competed at the Olympic games as sluggishly as we compete economically, there would be an outcry."
The video comes on the heels of an article Rinehart wrote last week, telling people that if they want to make more money, they should "spend less time drinking or smoking and socializing, and more time working."
And how exactly, you might be wondering, did Rinehart come to be worth an estimated $30 billion? As we mentioned above, via her family's iron-ore mining business …
