Should minimum wage be raised to living wage?
Debate Rounds (3)
People live in poverty because they only earn about $8. Is that really sufficient to live comfortably, let alone live?
$336 is barely enough per week to live on, especially if you have a family. You must pay for clothes, shelter, food, and water, which cost more than $336. Plus, tipped workers' minimum wage is just $2.13.
OrangeR forfeited this round.

Reasons for voting decision: Con shows that even if it was raised, shelter, food, water, taxes, etc. would still be a lot, and thus raising the tax would not make a difference. This is dropped by Pro, thus Con wins. Pro forfeits, thus conduct to Con.
