Quite true. If she could pay the miners less there would be more demand for their labor and product which would make more people want to be miners and she wouldn't have to hire those miners from another country. I say give the poor woman a break, shes clearly on the verge of starvation!

Minimum wage in Australia is something like $18 an hour. Its why a coke and a candy bar at the convenience mart, which would be $4.50 here in the US is $10 in Australia. A burger at the same type of place is $10. Raising the minimum wage does not really help anyone as it just raises prices, creates inflation and eliminates jobs that end up getting shipped overseas, but it does get bleeding heart, do-gooder politicians re-elected and the fact that these politicians can show they really CARE about people is far more important than our terrible unemployment problem or the over all long term good of the country.
