    Will tepid wage growth slow down the Fed?

    Managing Partner / Spotlight Ideas
    United Kingdom
    Today's US nonfarm payrolls print was robust beyond all expectations, but the jobs gain obscures the fact that wage growth in the US is rather tepid. This may lend Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen some time as she deliberates when to hike rates.
