Students under 18 are really just children. The most important time in a persons life, is their childhood. They don't need to remember constant political arguments. Nor should they have to face the mental stress that comes with constantly remembering all views and opinions of each debate. Children should be educated in our countries past before having a say that could change our future. I agree, some kids have the maturity to make smart educated decisions, yet most lack the knowledge that they n...

==Definitions== Minimum wage: The minimum wage will be defined as the minimum compensation a worker will receive (from his employer) for preforming different forms of labor. The minimum wage is enforced by government laws. The current minimum wage, in the USA, is $7.25 an hour. Increase: In order to avoid semantics (for example, someone arguing it should be increased by 0.001 cents an hour), I will specify: the person who accepts must support *at least* an increase to $10 an hour. Though,...
