The St. Cloud Times trolled through the list of 46,000 full-time employees who work for the state’s executive, legislative and judicial branches, and it identified the highest-paid workers on the list.

Six of the top 10 are medical specialists who work at the State Department of Human Services.

The top three:

James H. McCormick, former chancellor of Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, who retired in 2011. His earnings totaled $429,172.

Robert B. Jones, medical specialist, human services department, $424,567.

Alan Q. Radke, medical specialist, human services department, $401,223.

Again, this analysis was not of a comprehensive list of all state employees. Notably absent are university employees – like University of Minnesota football coach Jerry Kill, and basketball coach Tubby Smith, who make more than $1 million a year. University President Eric Kaler makes more than $600,000.

It's a few year old, but this Star Tribune database gives you a sense of what state employees earn, including a snapshot of high-profile employees.
