Recently the worlds richest woman Gina Rinehart has been causing quite the stir with her comments. Last week she told Australians they should drink and smoke less. This week she said in an interview Australians should turn to Africa for inspiration because Africans want to work, and its workers are willing to work for less than $2.00 per day.
All of this coming from a woman who makes $600.00 per second, and has an estimated net worth of $30 Billion. She made her fortune by inheriting her fathers Iron mining business which she has helped build as well. It must be noted that Gina has never run a mine herself.
When she inherited control of the Iron business from her father the company was making $30 million a year. Now with a large demand for her Iron Ore, she has experienced a significant increase in wealth with her personal fortune on track to potentially reaching $50 billion.
She is currently in a dispute with her family over her wealth. Three of her Four children want her removed as trustee of the families billions.
