Re "Minimum wage increase defining issue for Democrats" (Page A1, Feb. 4): I have heard pundits claim that raising the minimum wage would lead to fewer jobs. I have looked for studies to back up their claims but have found none.

A second point they make is that some of these jobs are the first rung on the career ladder opportunities for younger workers. I guess they haven't been through a fast food drive-through lately. Many of the workers there are not young.
