The minimum wage should not be raised to $15/hr for fast food workers

RoyLatham
TheHitchslap

Unions recently staged protests demanding that McDonald's in the U.S. should be required to pay workers a minimum of $15 per hour. An ABC News report provides some background on the issue [1. http://abcnews.go.com/ABC_Univision/News/fast-food-workers-demand-pay/story?id=20235304]. While McDonald's was the focus of the demonstrations, a law cannot target just one fast food company. If that were legal, other chains might get most of the business, McDonald's w...

Why the death penalty is ineffective and should be banned by the house

Samuel60
DonRCavalier

In this debate I will be arguing that the death penalty is ineffective and due to its ineffectiveness it should be banned by the house. The reasons that I will use will be that it's expensive, it causes racial disputes, it endangers innocent lives, and finally it doesn't deter crime rates. This is how I will put it down: 1.Introduction of the debate (first round) 2.Opponent's statement that he/she will agree to debate. 3.Arguments from both 4.Rebuttal/or counter argument 5.Conclusion...

Feminism

Korov007
YaHey

Feminism is a threat to society. Feminism encourages false rape accusations and stereotyping men as bad. I'm not saying that women don't have the same rights as men. I'm saying threatening to call the police for something ridiculous is completely obscure. I didn't know who to debate so I just put a random name lol...

Dakota-Hiltzman

1st round acceptance only and in the final round no new info may be brought up. NOTE: This resolution applies to the USA only. no info from other countries may be brought up!!!! I have also made this debate almost impossible to accept! As pro I am arguing that today's feminism is an excuse for misandry, the belief that women are better than men, and that women are oppressed in today's society (all of this includes that women can't rape and that men can't get raped). Con is arguing agains...

nkosi
Blade-of-Truth

Pro Says Marital Rape is Feasible. Con Says Its Just Conjugal Rights. The issue of marital rape is controversial as it has emerged to destroy and suffocate many spouses. Most claims made cannot be proven but since it is rape (mostly females), it has to be taken seriously. Failing to consider that the other spouse also has conjugal rights....
