Pro

Sweat shops are extremely important for this economic market that we are intraped in. The young man and women in this factory aren't inforced by the owners of the factory. There not like those dirty black slaves the have a choice. Another thing is if they didnt have the sweat shops, there would be NO jobs in china. Who would want to employ a bunch of TARDS. The sweat shops are imploying people.
Freeman

Con

The continued use of sweatshops represents a violation of basic human rights. Therefore, no degree of utility that can be achieved from running them can justify their maintenance. (Resolution negated)
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

The humans there arent force to be in the sweatshop. They chose to be in a sweatshop so that they can make more then !$ a day instead of making money 0$ cause of the low imployment and education rate
Freeman

Con

First of all, many sweatshops are coercive in nature. People work in them, often under abusive conditions [1], because they have no place else to turn to. Secondly, sweatshops help create a cycle of poverty and ignorance that prevents people from advancing themselves. If we as a species seek to improve the welfare of other people then we should place our emphasis on giving people an education, not subjugating them in sweatshops. (Resolution negated)

Conduct: Con.

Pro forfeited the last round.

Spelling and Grammar: Tie.

Nothing jumped out at me except Pro's use of "!" instead of "1", and I'm not going to mark against him for one typo.

Convincing Arguments: Con.

Con actual made an argument, instead of simply asserting a bunch of over generalizations.

Sources: Con.

Con provided a source.
