Data show that minimum wage earning parents don't spend enough time with their children because they have to work more than one job in order to provide for their families. According to the Baltimore Sun editorial ("A $15 minimum wage? Not so fast," May 1), if the minimum wage were raised to $15 per hour, there would be fewer jobs and more pressure for minority youth to enter the underground economy. But we don't agree because if parents can spend more time with their children, they will be able to have a positive influence on them. This will help our youth achieve more, reduce crime and help our city grow.
