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

RoyLatham

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...

Abuse of new youtubers by popular youtuber via over exposure

Emc97
Mister_Man

I find that the abuse of power by popular youtubers is wrong the fact that they can easily destroy new youtubers by overexposure. I have seen plenty of new up and coming youtubers getting ,,recommended,, by popular youtubers then in a matter of days their subscription goes from 20k to over a few hundred thousand causing sudden camera shyness a decrease of video quality and frequency and in less then a month the youtuber looses their original sub base and all their new ones essentially killing...

THBT denial of rights of an individual can be made only if it infringes upon the rights of another.

UNSTABLE
Mike_10-4

I think that a person's right should be denied only if it infringes upon the rights of another and not when it causes harm to those who exercise the rights themselves.Like smoking should only be banned if it affects others(like passive smokers). But a person should be allowed to smoke if they want in private without affecting others...

Children should not be allowed to use guns in school even with training.

Epicknightmc

Before you accept, anyone may join no cussing think before you act. My debate: Children should not be able to use a gun in school even with training. hats because of a child's temptation, anger, use of weapon, school budgets, PTA, health (injuries,) and the child. Temptation, Anger: due to lack of resistance against anger and temptation in most children, children may shoot at a fellow innocent classmate when the child gets angry and tempted. This could lead to a firefight between...
