    Fed's Kashkari: If wage growth continues, could have effect on interest rates

    WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - The wage growth seen in the January jobs report was one of the "first signs" that wages are picking up and it could cause the Federal Reserve to respond, said Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari said Friday. In an interview on CNBC, Kashkari called the wage growth "the most important thing" in the jobs data. "This is one of the first signs that we're seeing wage growth finally starting to pick up," Kashkari said. "If wage growth continues, that could have an effect on the path of interest rates," he said. Kashkari opposed all three rate hikes last year, saying he didn't see enough evidence inflation was climbing toward the Fed's 2% target.
