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. Though,...

Should Harriet Tubman replace Andrew Jackson on the 20$ bill?

Janemarie25

There is absolutely no reason to replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill. Andrew Jackson has been on the twenty dollar bill since 1928, so why change it now? Jackson was the first president to be elected by popular sentiment, and he did so three times! He was also a war hero as a major general in the War of 1812. He was also the first president who was previously a prisoner of war. Jackson wasn't born into wealth either, he worked his way up from nothing. The argumen...

We should redistribute wealth from the top 1% to the lower-middle class

Benshapiro
Unitomic

I'm looking to have a short but concise debate. The full topic is "We should redistribute wealth from the top 1% to the lower-middle class in the USA through additional taxation." Wealth redistribution will incur an extra 10% tax per dollar earned over the existing income tax rate to the wealthiest 1% to be redistributed to the lower-middle class. First round is for acceptance....

I think children over the age of 10 are responsible enough, to have a facebook account. They are at that age where they can be really responsible.Although, I am not totally for it because children are children and they can get a bit irresponsible. I guess it just matters on the child....

Social Darwinism

themightyindividual
iqpiblog

Debate perimeters: This debate is on the subject of social Darwinism, the economic idea and philosophy that people act individually and compete within the market for resources and in doing so create wealth. Those who create the most wealth have done so by their own free will and those who have created the least have also done so by their own free will. This debate will be argued using fact and reason, no emotional opinions or subjectively heavy thoughts are used in the debate. To my o...
