Plus, we explore the tensions that arise in neighborhoods where gentrification has caused both economic and cultural shifts and discuss how raising the minimum wage would affect the day-to-day lifestyles of families and individuals. Also, who do you tip and why? A new Starbucks app makes it easy to add gratuity to your purchases, but just because it’s convenient, does that mean people will pay?
