Feedback:
Con, take part in your debate please.
Pro, risky move posting a one-sentence opening and then not backing your statement with any sources or numbers. The wage gap question is absolutely a numbers game, so come ready to play with stats and studies. If your opponent had come back and actually had numbers to throw out, you would have been in serious trouble.
