The Minimum Wage Should Not be Raised

DerKurbis
NorthKorea

Raising the minimum wage results in job loss. A 2006 review of more than 100 minimum wage studies by David Neumark and William Wascher found that about 2/3 found negative employment effects. It hurts low-skilled workers - reduces employment among low-skilled workers (reduces the employment of younger, less-educated individuals). It has little effect on reducing poverty. It may result in higher prices for consumers; a 2007 study from the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago found that restaurant price...

Race, genes, IQ

Chuck11
kweef

Last year my brother called me a "racist" for pointing out that genes could mediate some of the US racial achievement gap, so, being a neurotic, I spend a number of months digging through the data and outlining the idea. (http://abc102.wordpress.com/) "Race, genes, and disparity." I found the idea to be plausible, but the evidence, while trending to support a partial genetic hypothesis, equivocal -- anyways, I'm looking for someone to debate the issue. The stipulation is that they read through s...

Legalization of Marijuana

AnOddBeauty
BangBang-Coconut

Marijuana, otherwise known as Cannabis sativa, is a simple plant that grows from the Earth. This leads to the other names of this government hated plant... Grass, weed. Marijuana is not a drug by any means. It comes from the green element. And if you should so happen to set it on fire [another element] there are some effects. You can't put two natural substances together and say it's a drug. That's no drug, that's nature....

Euthanasia

laurenoschmann
BangBang-Coconut

Euthanasia should be legal in the United States. However, only when voluntary. A person has the right to life, and therefore they also have the right to die. Why should they suffer if they don't have to or don't want to any longer? Nobody should have to suffer for a longer period of time if they don't want to. Being terminally ill and fighting for so long is suffering enough. They must grow tired of it and if there is a way to end the suffering peacefully and safely then people should at least h...

Cons job will be to suggest an alternative solution that does not increase the risk of harm to Israel, Israeli citizens, or the Jewish People. This debates definition of unreasonable includes, but is not limited to, anything that results in that. My opening points assume three opt...
