Whoever my opponent is, I look forward to an enriching and meaningful debate. The only rules are not to troll, forfeit, or insult your opponent. Here's how the debate will be structured: Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Pro's opening argument, Con's rebuttal. Round 3: Con's argument, Pro's rebuttal. Round 4: Pro's rebuttal to rebuttal, closing p...

The Wage Gap is Fake

tkentk

As an avid surfer of the webs, I inevitably come across feminist blogs and other such sites claiming that there is an unfair wage gap between men and women in the United States. It is my belief, after some research, that this claim is untrue. To start off with, discrimination in salary in a working environment has been illegal since 1963. If you believe that your gender is causing your employer to pay you more or less, you can sue them in court and you will win. Period. Besides that, th...

Is the Wage gap real?

TheRealBatman
Marky25

The Wage gap..... is it real? Modern third wave feminists and leftists have convinced that the wage gap between genders exist. The belief states that for every dollar a man makes in a job, for the exact same job, the woman would make around 66 cents, based on an average made across the United States. Firstly, the way the data is obtained is extremely flawed. An average then used to compare specific jobs around the world, which doesn't take into account occupation, hours worked, position, a...
