Should the minimum wage be increased to the proposed 15$ ?

Sweg123
Scots_167

I think the minimum wage should not be raised to the proposed $15/hour! The minimum wage should be $8.50/hour. Accept this debate if you feel that the minimum wage should be 15$+ /hour like proposed by Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton....

I affirm the resolution that Mental Health Testing Ought to be Required for United States Public Schools. Mental health has become an unaddressed pandemic. School shootings, specifically that of Columbine in which the Eric Harris is considered an undiagnosed psychopath and Dylan Klebold is considered an undiagnosed depressive. Mrs. Klebold even published a book on the topic of mental health in schools, wit...

You can judge me but I can't judge you

albertack
Youdontknowjeff

Rather than for or against, I would like to present this argument as a dialogue. I hope to get some contrasting thoughts on the matter if possible. Do some individuals possess a greater capacity to judge than others? Do their judgments hold more weight, as it were? Certainly, America's judicial system is centered around the idea that a person can develop the capacity to cast more wise judgments than another, hence the Supreme Court. If the ability to judge more correctly can be developed...

Should Animals Be Used for Cosmetic and Cleaning Product Testing in the USA?

firefury14620
LuckyScientist

Many arguments have arisen with the growth of the animal rights movement such as the difficulty of enforcing an abolition of animal testing. There are many animal rights acts that have been put into place and enforced that were controversial at the time they were created. An example would be the Humane Slaughter Act that prohibits the use of painful slaughtering methods on farm animals. The only requirements I could find for research facilities was the regulations for any indoor facility used to...
