Do The Aussies Know How to Build a Proper Guillotine?

They have need of one:
Gina Rinehart, thought to be the world's richest woman, chastised [Australian] miners for being “too expensive,” saying, “Africans want to work. Its workers are willing to work for less than $2 per day.”
Yup. For it's easy to see her experience at working at a dreary, dangerous job for shit wages: None whatsoever.
Rinehart knows what it means to pull yourself up by the bootstraps. She inherited a fortune now estimated to be worth about $18 billion. That's a heavy burden to bear.
It's such a burden to win the Lucky Sperm Lotto and be born into a family of wealth and power. And then to have the delusion that she has done all this by her own hard work, that otherwise, she'd be living in a singlewide trailer in Wyndham, Western Australia and slinging hash in a local diner.

The big question, though, is why Mittens hasn't proposed to her. They would seem to be soulmates.

Be glad they don't. If they ever do, it will be those "expensive" miners, not the likes of Ms. Rinehart.

She is a putz, If there were large Iron deposits in Africa that are (High,Medium,Low,) grade and the economics were such that it was profitable to extract and process the ore, then the likes of BHP and Rio Tinto would be digging up vast sections of the Dark Continent. But at this time many of the known but untouched deposits are not profitable, in that these project would require a significant amount of front loading to even start the projects. Add to this the stability of the various government and it turns out that there is no profit to be had even if the people work for free much less 2 dollars a day.

She is just a disgruntled Coupon Clipper who wants more for her coupon then she is currently getting.

There is that little detail. Good point.
