Hello, I will be debating that the minimum wage should be raised to $10. Here is the format:

Round 1: Acceptance
Round 2: Constructive
Round 3: Cross-Examination
Round 4: Rebuttals
Good luck, and may the best debater win.

I accept the debate and its format. I will assume that the resolution is that the raising of the minimum wage to a rate of $10 per hour will be economically beneficent. As the current federal minimum wage is $7.25, and Pro is the only one advocating a change, the Burden of Proof is on Pro. I will also assume that Pro is talking about the federal minimum wage in the United States of America (do try to be more specific with your definition of the topic next time).

I look forward to an interesting debate.

Extend my forfeit. Thank you for your advice Tej-senpai.

Opsianos, post "extend" this round and the next one instead of forfeiting - equal number of forfeits means no victory for you.

If I was forced to increase the minimum wage, the max I'd go is $8.50.

Minimum wage per state? Or minimum wage for the entire country?
