Chicago, New York and Honolulu have made the short list to host Barack Obama's future presidential library.
 
The Barack Obama Foundation, which is developing and raising money for the massive legacy project, announced Monday that it has selected four universities to compete for the library, culled from an initial list of 13 applications submitted earlier this year. The University of Hawaii, in Obama's birthplace Honolulu, made the cut, as did New York's Columbia University.

Under current law, restaurants, hotels and other employers can pay service workers less than the minimum wage as long as their tips make up the difference. A coalition of labor unions, service workers and others is pushing for the state to eliminate the so-called tip wage and require service workers to be paid the full minimum wage of $8 before tips.
