Memphis budget battle continues

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — City workers and retirees are still fighting mad over the council’s decision to cut health benefits, even though the council passed a $2 million ‘safety net’ to help ease the pain.

In fact, workers’ unions this week started targeting the city’s tax break program for businesses.

Meantime, on the pension debate, the council does what all good politicians do with a hot button issue…and delayed taking up that matter again until October.
