Fed Up Campaign Celebrates Victory for Working Families as Fed Holds Off on Rate Hikes

Center for Popular Democracy

WASHINGTON - After a month of major mobilizations from Jackson Hole, WY to Washington, DC, the Fed Up campaign today released the following statement, celebrating the Federal Reserve’s decision not to raise interest rates.

“This is a victory for the working families who stepped up with innovative organizing to send the Fed a clear message: Our voices belong in the debate about our economy,” said Ady Barkan, Campaign Director for Fed Up. “With the recovery still far too weak in too many communities, it would have been economically devastating – and immoral – to slow the economy.”
