It’s a holiday weekend, but there’s still news to unpack before the Fourth of July barbecues can get started. Catherine Rampell from the Washington Post and Sudeep Reddy from the Wall Street Journal join Molly for this installment of the Weekly Wrap.

In the headlines:

The University of Washington lowers its tuition.

Whole Foods is sorry for overcharging (some of its) customers.

Uber is getting a lot of funding … but not turning much of a profit.
