Should minimum wage be raised to $15.00 an hour?

HaleyHendershot
eZminT

Employees who are paid minimum wage (which currently on average is 7.25) are asking for a raise. But, not just any kind of raise. They want the pay to be increased to $15 dollars an hour. Now an E.M.T(who is trained to save lives) is only paid roughly $14 an hour. So, tell me how a person who flips burgers should get paid more than a person who has a human life on their hands? The minimum wage receivers claim, "We do to much." And, "It's not a livable wage." Although, it may not be a wage where...

The Christian god exists and rules over the universe - read rules

UnhookedSchnook
Grandzam

My opponent must be a Christian that believes in every word of the bible. They must construct one strong evidence-based argument that proves the existence of their god. If my opponent or I disagree with one another (which we most likely will) we must post a refute/defence. I will not post any points as to why being an atheist is best as we do not have the burden of proof. If my opponent agrees with me I win, if I agree with them they win, if we disagree the voters are suggested to look for any v...

Entertainment. What is it? It can include movies, sporting events, and video games.

bringing salt water inland.

ForGrowthOfMind

hello my name is foster tom. I have had this thought and googled a few things about it. bringing sea water inland. It seems that a lot of people, well not a lot but there is speculation on the though, have already been toying with the idea. but they only seem set on the idea of making a lake or distilling through the ground. my thought was bringing salt water inland to an area with man made ponds or maybe silos heated with solar power and evaporating it without introducing the salt water to the...

Abortion should be considered a right

gahileshkumar
Cuckoogenie

It is a known fact that no contraceptive is 100% effective. Hence there is a possibility of unplanned pregnancies, which may occur under various circumstances. While most are pleasant surprises, in some cases like pregnancies in teenagers or women with terminal illnesses, these unplanned pregnancies have the power to affect the lives of all parties involved in a negative manner. In such cases, abortion should not only be considered moral, but should be encouraged....

The Confederacy; flags, monuments, symbols

pjjames89

While many historical documents indicate the word slavery; both Union and Confederacy. There seem to be no institutional indication that the Confederacy fought for slavery itself, neither did the Union (keyword: Institutionally). The moral binoculars of slavery may have been debated, mainly by the North, but the topic seemed to be weighted by various other variables that depended on the slave labor. Common arguments against this idea commonly use the succession letters, and various documents...
