Business News: Tipping banned at some restaurants

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - In Business News, calculating a tip for your server when you go out to eat could soon be a thing of the past.

Some top restaurants from New York to California have already banned tipping and increased the salaries of the wait staff.

They say if workers have a reliable income they can focus on doing their job well.

But some servers argue tipping gives them an opportunity to make more money than a salary could provide. 



(CBS) - Facebook and half a dozen other tech companies have launched a joint project called Internet dot org.

It's goal is to connect the two-thirds of the global population that don't have Internet access.


The six tech companies that include Samsung and Nokia among others, want to drastically cut the cost of Internet services on mobile phones especially in developing countries.

They say they will simplify phone applications so they transmit more data while using less battery power. 



(CBS) - On the jobs front, part-time hiring is on the rise.

Three out of four of the nearly 1 million hires this year are part-time and many of the jobs are low-paid.

Economists say business owners are trying to control costs amid concerns about the faltering economy and President Barack Obama's signature health care law, which requires many businesses to provide their full-time employees with health care coverage.
