Pro

I will argue in favour of abolishing the minimum wage. Debate must occur in real time via skype, googlehangout or phone; I will record and publish on utube.
burtont

Con

Abolishing the minimum wage would be completely and utterly foolish. Without minimum wage, bad bosses could easily take advantage of their workers. Everyone is entitled to be able to make money, and I think that everyone should be entitled to make a certain AMOUNT of money.

Chemically castrating myself would not be doing the world a favor, it would be cursing it. I've helped this world a lot already, and have plans to help it even more.

incidentally, dylip, i don't want to skype you, i want u to stop accepting my debates. also, if u could do the world a favour and chemically castrate yourself, so as not infect the gene pool with your inferior genes, that would be great

Reasons for voting decision: I believe Con should win, as it is very violating to have to Skype someone you don't know just for a silly debate on minimum wage.

Reasons for voting decision: Even though Con didnt follow the rules, this website is for written debates, not video debates and con's arguments are right. Pro shouldnt have made this debate in the first place he should find a website that has video debates and keep his video debates off this website. Pro also spelled youtube wrong.
