I pay more than minimum wage - if people are worth a wage, that's what you should pay them, not try to shaft them down to a lower wage. According to the worlds richest woman though, Australia should get rid of the minimum wage altogether so that she can pay her workers whatever she likes to compete with regions like Africa. Source[^].

Interestingly enough, she has previously suggested that people who are jealous of wealth could be just as wealthy as her if they stopped drinking and smoking, and spent more time working (presumably at her company to make her richer still). After all, she started from nothing so she knows what she's talking about. Oh wait, she inherited a fortune, so perhaps she doesn't.

Fortunately for Australia, their Prime Minister has poured scorn on the idea.
