Yes, that's a huge problem, and it's been ignored, or just nibbled at around the edges for far too long. Our achievement gap is one that is based on both race and socioeconomic status, and if we do early childhood education, and educate our children from birth to age 5, we increase our opportunity to address that disparity. I'm focused on doing that with a combination of universal pre-K—a whole day for 4 year olds, a half day for 3 year olds—and child care subsidies that actually work, not just for low income people who have been on long waiting lists with vouchers that don't buy quality childcare. I will end the waiting list and increase the value of the voucher. I will transition the voucher in a way that will benefit the middle class, by increasing the income limit to $54,000 to qualify. That taken together will help to dramatically address the achievement gap in our schools. Now, in terms of the income equality gap, I want to increase our minimum wage to a living wage of $16.70 an hour by 2022, paid for in part by also closing corporate tax loopholes and using the money to give small businesses tax relief. Small businesses get tax relief up front in exchange for a longer term plan to increase wages. We also want to index wages for inflation, and address tipped-wage workers, who are often women, people of color, so that we have more than $3.63 an hour. It should be pegged at 70% of the threshold amount. I'm also addressing the gender pay gap which is one that breaks down along racial lines as well. We have women making about 85 cents to the dollar that men make in our state. But if you're an African American woman? It's 67 cents on the dollar, and if you're Latina, it's 46 cents on the dollar. We have to address this with a sense of urgency. We can't just say great, we're at 85 cents, that's better than the national average. I want to pass a Maryland Paycheck Fairness Act while Congress is stalled on that. Our criminal justice platform is full of things that address inequalities in the system. I don't just want to be tough on crime, I want to be smart on crime. And you'll find in my platform everything from an end to the cash bail system, so we're not putting a price on people's heads for freedom anymore. Someone can be sitting in detention just because of a backlog. They're nonviolent offenders, stuck in detention for a month, they lose their jobs…it creates this whole cyclical impact. We need to use a risk-release system: you're detained if you're a threat to society, but otherwise you're going to be released until your court date. It's so much more fair, especially for people of color who get unfairly wrapped up in the criminal justice system. I want to end mandatory minimum sentencing, because we need to return discretion to the judge. We want to stop incarcerating and trying youth as adults, and get to a place where we're no longer doing youth detention at all, but we shift to the Missouri model of community-based resources and prevention strategies. And we've got Ban the Box and shielding and a whole range. And we need to rev up our reentry programs. We need to be preparing for reentry at entry. We're not doing a good enough job keeping violent criminals behind bars and disconnecting nonviolent offenders from a life of crime.
