LETTER: $15 costs jobs

Dear KIRO TV,

I saw your news piece about the minimum wage raise in Seattle and how it will affect the immigrant community. I really appreciated your perspective and reporting angle on this issue, as it highlights a very complex problem within my community that has not been highlighted by this debate.

The minimum wage raise will cost jobs within the immigrant community and will push many small immigrant business owners out of business. This issue has to be addressed by the mayor’s office and the council members.

Hopefully, news segment like yours will highlight this and bring attention to the debate. (end)
