Minimum Wage Raise

Jbmelk

I am against a raise in the minimum wage for a few reasons. 1. A minimum wage would force many jobs to be lost. Say for example, if there was a $15 minimum wage, then I will use Dunder Mifflin Paper as an example. They have 15 employees in one branch and they all get paid, say $9/hr. Dunder Mifflin is breaking even and doing ok. But, now that the federal government has stepped in and raised the minimum wage to $15/hr, Dunder Mifflin has had to fire people due to the higher wages. Now Dunder...

Should we stop hunting Lions?

I think we should stop hunting lions because the population of lions was really high in the 1990-1950 (100,000 to 400,000).Now there is about 16,500 to 47,000 lions left in the wild. Lions don't do anything to us, they just want to avoid us but we provoke them and it get them angry and they start killing people because of us provoking them. We kill them for no reason sometimes just for fun or just to keeps it's head as a trophy. Heard about Cecil the Lion, Scientist were studying that Lion un...

The Federal Reserve Should Be abolished:

If you accept this debate you must debate the topic, you cannot flake out on the debate if you cannot respond to my arguments. If you cannot do this, don't accept. Also, as a forewarning, I am going to use google documents so don't complain about it, if you don't like it, don't accept, you could just as easily use google documnts so I don't have any "advantage."...

smart cities lead to inflation

Mayankshandilya
dsjpk5

Let me clarify that I am not a Luddite who is against deploying new technology. I am merely arguing that technology is a useful tool for achieving other objectives and is not a goal in itself. smart cities are ultimately about clustering smart people and not steel-and-chrome towers: s. Building human capital clusters also requires active management and investment. One obvious strategy is to weave educational, cultural and intellectual institutions into the fabric of the city. Yet, Indian urban...
