JAKE CASTANZA Executive Director
I’ve had a passion for helping people my entire life. From a young age, my dad inspired me to share my voice and protect what I believed in.
As Executive Director of WBTC, I am honored to be a leader in the community advocating for others, serving as a catalyst for change, a strategic business collaborator, and a motivator for economic growth.
I pledge to support WBTC in striving to build a stronger legacy of excellence in the WI construction industry. To serve the WBTC community, I am committed to growing trade opportunities in Wisconsin, increasing diversity in our workforce, advocating for workers benefits and safety, and advancing training programs and apprenticeships to open more doors. I look forward to the journey “Forward”.
Securing A Stronger Future for Workers Through Prevailing Wage
When it comes to prevailing wage law, we find there is a lot of misunderstanding and confusion around what it really means.
What are the economic benefits?
How does it impact business owners and taxpayers?
Does prevailing wage increase construction costs?
WBTC welcomes these conversations so we can protect and secure a stronger future for a diverse workforce in our Wisconsin communities.
Our goals are big, from advocating for workers’ benefits, compensation, and safety to advancing initiatives to increase workforce diversity. We are committed to excellence in everything we do.
