Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen’s June 2015 Press Conference (Video)


“Obviously we have to look at the pace of job creation, we have to look at what’s happening to labor force participation to part time employment for economic reasons, to job openings, to the pace of quits, to wage inflation and other indicators of the state of the labor market. I did say when we agreed that labor markets slack has diminished to some extent, in the inter-meeting period and clearly over a longer span of time over the last several years, obviously we have made considerable progress in moving towards our goal of maximum employment. So in spite of the fact that there is some progress on that front the committee wants to see some further progress before feeling that it will be appropriate to raise rates.” – Chairwoman Janet Yellen
