KANSAS CITY — Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank President Dennis Lockhart Thursday declared his dissatisfaction with the current labor market conditions, underlining the central bank's aggressive push to make greater headway in lowering the stubbornly high unemployment rate.

In remarks prepared for delivery at the Kansas City Fed's conference on 'The Future of Workforce Development', Lockhart — a member of the Federal Open Market Committee who voted for the Fed's expanded asset purchase program and the shift in forward guidance to late-2015 -- did not comment on monetary policy or give his outlook for the economy.
