The minimum wage is necessary to protect workers. It's simple. A full-time job should be an escape from poverty. Additionally, minimum wages improve overall economic health, because people have more purchasing power, which is good for businesses as well. Prove me wrong.

I agree to your rules, with one exception. We should be able to rebut arguments in the fourth round. Here is my opening statement:

The minimum wage is necessary to protect workers. It's simple. A full-time job should be an escape from poverty. Without a minumum wage, millions of people will be consigned to poverty Additionally, minimum wages improve overall economic health, because people have more purchasing power, which is good for businesses as well. A minimum wage is necessary fir a healthy economy that meets the needs of all it's participants.
