2. A California-based electronics company was penalized by labor authorities for bringing eight workers from India and continuing to pay them what they earned in Bangalore: $1.21 per hour.

3. The creators of the popular CBS drama The Good Wife revealed that British actress Archie Panjabi is leaving the show after this season.

4. Panjabi, who plays Kalinda Sharma in The Good Wife, has signed a deal to star in a new Saturday morning show called Archie & Friends.
