Marketplace for Tuesday, August 21, 2012

All eyes are still transfixed on the Apple-Samsung patent trial, and now the case is in the hands of a jury. Meanwhile, the Fair Labor Association says Apple's supplier in China, Foxconn, is improving its factory conditions. Some of the world's biggest hotel chains and online travel sites are now being accused of price fixing. David Brancaccio continues our new series, Payday, with a look at how one man set out to learn just how wide the CEO to employee pay gap really is. And Tess Vigeland goes on an LAPD ride-along through the Watts neighborhood in Los Angeles.
