English term or phrase:successfully pressuring for higher wages
Believe it or not, economists consider this a good sign. If workers were successfully pressuring for higher wages, that would reflect an expectation of even more inflation to come and lead to a spiral of rising wages and prices. It's the job of the Fed, Bernanke has said, to use smart policy to keep those expectations in check by consistently taking action as soon as inflation starts to cut loose.
