Unfortunately, a lot of people actually believe all those urban legends about kids being poisoned, kidnapped, or killed by razor blades on Halloween. In reality, the overwhelming majority of these stories are completely untrue, and the few are true are greatly exagerated and/or changed from what really happened. The crime rate, including the kidnapping rate, does NOT increase at Halloween. But people are becomming more and more paranoid, mainly because of groups who want to scare people into giving up their freedoms in a bid for increased political power. Their tactics are working, and the demographic that is suffering the most from the results is the children.

Econ 101. (simplified version) Raising the minimum wage rate would more likely than not, increase the crime rate. By increasing the minimum wage, employers will be able to hire fewer workers.
