Castle Building & Remodeling Increases Company Minimum Wage to $15/hour

Castle Building & Remodeling is committed to growing a progressive company and making the community it serves, a better place to live.  In support of the recently approved Minneapolis $15.00/hour minimum wage increase, Castle has proactively formalized its own $15.00/hour company minimum wage policy, effective immediately.  It believes that in order to provide a professional service with the best overall value, it needs to invest in its employees by paying a living wage.  The company wholeheartedly agrees with the city increase and will not wait for the ordinance to take effect in 2022 to meet this standard.



Castle hopes to be a leader in this change, encouraging other small businesses to adopt the increase as soon as possible.  It would like to thank the roughly 400 clients who enabled this substantial investment in its people, and pay a living wage to its 40 employees (over $2 million in projected wages in 2017).


Castle is currently recruiting experienced tradespeople to join its team and plans to add 3-5 skilled carpenters, tile installers, drywallers and painters in 2017.  Interested candidates can find out more about joining the Castle team by visiting the Work@Castle page at: http://castlebri.com/workcastle/
