Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Here's a look at your top business and tech headlines from Cheddar on News 12:

A new government report recommends a price hike at the United States Postal Service. It recommends the post office start charging increased fees for certain deliveries that are considered non-essential. The report was requested by President Donald Trump, who has long accused Amazon of taking advantage of the post office for its shipping needs. Not included in the report is how much the post office should increase its fees.

A new list ranks the best tech companies to work for - and there's a change at the top. The number one spot goes to Zoom Communications, a company that provides video conferencing software. Facebook, who was ranked number one last year, has dropped to number four, and Google comes in at number five. 

Apple has launched a new online store that offers discounts to veterans and their family members. It offers products like iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches at a 10 percent discount. In the past, smaller discounts were available to veterans through a federal purchase program.
