The Federal Reserve board chairs meet this Thursday and Friday, September 16 and 17 and they are expected to vote on whether or not to raise interest rates. Call the Fed today to tell them where we stand: Don’t raise interest rates prematurely. Instead, prioritize full employment and wage growth.
The Federal Reserve Public Comment Line
My name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [Town, State]. Please express to the Federal Reserve board members that I oppose raising interest rates while the American economy is still recovering. An interest rate hike now would slow down economic activity resulting in fewer jobs and lower wages. Please, do not raise interest rates prematurely.
