The Memphis City Council voted Tuesday to increase the honorary grants going to city workers who participated in the 1968 sanitation strike, the Commercial Appeal reports. The 10 retirees and four active employees will get $70,000 grants, with all taxes paid by the city. Earlier the council had passed Mayor Jim Strickland's proposal to give the strikers all-taxes-paid $50,000 grants.
