minimum wages


You can’t fault business people for making a profit. However if you are a billionaire, how do you get the nerve to tell workers they should work for $2 a day. Apparently in Australia, mining tycoons think their countrymen should be like African workers who are willing to work for $2 a day. Instead of trying to lift people in Africa who are doing terribly dangerous work, we should have workers in other continents race down to these ridiculously low wages to keeps companies from moving jobs. Amazing way to build community – more for me, crumbs for you.
