Resolved: The Minimum Wage Should be Increased

16kadams
Wylted

==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.

A341

I am starting my own thing called speed debating (yes, a parody of speed dating.) We will each only have fifteen minutes to post an argument for each round. If you forfeit any round without a good excuse, you will lose. Voters, please keep this rule in mind. Contender, you may put your excuse in the comments. If I accept it, I will say so in my argument, or the comments if the debate has finished. Here is how the rounds will go down: Round 1: Opening Statements Only (No Arguments) Round 2:...

Communism is Fascistic in Principle

Ameliamk1
Wocambs

The issue of Communism is a divisive one, with a growing number of defenders and sympathizers. One of the most common arguments from that camp is to say that Communism, despite its despotic history, is a free system if implemented "correctly". So here is my contention: by it's very tenants, Communism demands and indeed requires the implementation of either martial law or dictatorship. To accept the Con position, my opponent must support the opposite position. Important Terms: Communism: My...

Should the minimum wage be raised?

GVMSDEBATE
Sosoconfused

The minimum wage should not be raised. Currently the minimum wage is $7.25. If this is raised what will happen? Well it's common sense. If I own a chain fast food restaurant and my goal is a cheap healthy option o the go food wise. I pay my employees minimum wage. Now lets look at the problem in my business I will be forced to fire a portion of my employees or throw away the goal in my restaurant because I would have to raise prices of my food just to pay a bill. How does raising the minimum wag...
