I expect workers to report a 6-cent hourly raise in February, a little off of last month's pace. Experts had forecasted a gain of just 200,000 jobs for the month.

While the hiring increases are a good sign, wage growth did not increase as those fell from January to 2.6 percent year-over-year. Thanks to the fiscal stimulus from tax reform, this seasonality is unlikely to recur in 2018.
Yes, it would be nice to see paychecks rise faster, but the saving grace of the fact that they aren't is that it allows the Fed a little more room for patience, strengthening the arguments of the "let it run" faction inside the central bank.
