Bernanke: US job market improving but still far from normal with further gains uncertain
WASHINGTON (AP) ' Chairman Ben Bernanke says the U.S. job market remains weak despite three months of strong hiring and that the Federal Reserve's existing policies will help boost growth.
Bernanke says further job gains will likely require more robust consumer and business demand.
Bernanke's comments were a strong indication that the central bank is prepared to keep its low-interest rate policies in place for some time to come despite the recent signs of economic growth.
