However by analyzing the "Top Ten" entities in this list of employers we find (and should be very concerned) that --
- 3 of these 10 entities are government entities -- State of Minnesota, US Federal Government, and University of Minnesota
- Minnesota's LARGEST employer is the "State of Minnesota" itself -- not famous Minnesota entities like 3M or Target Corporation but our own state government
- A full 40% of the employees in this Top Ten list (107, 945 of 266,790 employees who work for the ten largest employers) work for the 3 government entities
Personally I would rather see 3M produce another great product like Post-It Notes versus seeing another research report created by Minnesota's state government.
