Pro

Minimum Wage Should Not Be Raised.
1. Raising the minimum wage will just lead to inflation
2. Not all jobs deserve $15/hr
3. People can"t afford to pay workers 15$ minimum wage

Con

I'll take this debate.

To answer your claims that a higher minimum wage will be bad for the economy, Observe the following list of countries with a minimum wage equivalent to higher than $10 U. S. /hour:

1. Australia (14. 17)
2. Luxembourg (13. 67)
3. New Zealand (13. 16)
4. Monaco (11. 88)
5. Ireland (11. 54)
6. France (11. 46)
7. U. K. (11. 18)
8. Belgium (11. 06)
9. Germany (10. 68)
10. Netherlands (10. 65)
11. San Marino (10. 55)
12. Canada (10. 30)
https://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_minimum_wage#List

As you can see, Several countries have minimum wages pretty close to $15US, And they are not financially crippled. Quite the opposite, They are some of the most prosperous countries in the world.

Moreover, California already has a minimum wage of $14. 00, And they would have one of the highest GDPs as an independent country in the world. Washington and Massachusetts also have minimum wages over $13. 00.

Best of luck in this debate.

The legal minimum wage is 0. 00 an hour and it is a state-mandated pay base that is by governing states, Not a minimum wage.
