Starbucks tips

Starbucks allowed its supervisors to take a share of the tip jar. Now a court has told it to pay $100 million back to baristas who were shortchanged over the years. Management and supervisors don't get tips under California law (or under any proper law anywhere). They are supposed to get paid well enough not to need them. Apparently Starbuck is appealing. I think Starbucks is silly to appeal this one. Keeping this story in the news is bad publicity. More here.

SPECIAL COVERAGE I live-blogged the spontaneous Obama victory celebration in Washington DC. Experience what it felt like to be among thousands of deliriously happy people gathered outside the White House. Click here.

Previously, I had been blogging about the Obama, McCain and the US election. I wrote about Sarah Palin on this blog even before McCain chose her to be his running mate. The choice was disappointing, and a possibility I had anticipated.
