This is a debate on minimum wage. I will be arguing that minimum wage is bad for people who are trying to find a job, and people all ready in the workforce. You will be arguing the opposite.

This first round is just a clearification of the topic. If you have anything to add to the topic, or any more clearifications, say it in the first round. I will be posting my argument in round two.

Minimum wage is harmful. This is so because it does not give an opportunity for those who are not worth minimum wage. If a job does not require very much work, it should not pay like it does. By requiring business to pay minimum wage, one who might of had work will not get it. If a job were to sit at a front desk, only to watch people who come in, it may not be worth $8 an hour.

Minimum wage was set up to protect workers and provide some standard of living. But today, if one doesn't want to work for $5 and hour, he will find a job somewhere else.
