Pro contends there is no way that wages for Walmart's cashiers should remain the same in the USA. Walmart's cashier's pay should be raised at least 1$ per hour in the USA. Thanks for reading.
It's not the fault of the company if they are paying their employees above the minimal wage. It's not their responsibility to focus on being the most moral and generous company, because all companies need to make money, so it is the responsibility of the government to raise the minimum wage to 10-15 dollars an hour.
We can't say that these employees need to be paid more, we need to say all employees need to be paid more. We can't single out a single companies when low pay is a national issue, so that is where this topic is flawed
Thank you, and I will let pro respond
Pro says we need to raise a Walmart's cashier pay at least 1$, when really, we need to raise it at least 5$ across the country
Pro has stated a moral argument, and I have stated facts

Reasons for voting decision: Raising the minimum wage would increase cashier's pay... Therefore, when Con pushes for a MW increase, he supports Pro's side.
