Con

How can the United States help correct gender bias on income payments?

I accept the challenge. Hopefully Con will clarify more as to the exact resolution in Round 2, because it is quite vague at the moment.

Sorry about that forfeit, the 24 hour time limit caught me off-guard. I'll put off arguments for the next round in hopes my opponent gets on and posts something.

From what I can gather based off my opponent's opening statement, they are advocating a change. Therefore I am Pro for the status quo, whereas my opponent is Con on the status quo as they seem to advocate for some sort of change to close the income inequality. Therefore the BoP is on Con, as they not only must prove income inequality exists, but then provide a solution to fix it. As Pro, I must prove that either there is not an inequality in the status quo, or that my opponent's plan does not hold up.

Thank you!

Too lazy to post an argument so if I could get conduct points that'd be pretty cool.
