Rise in High-Earning State Workers



A report from GateHouse Media says more than 6,200 Illinois state government workers took home compensation of more than $100,000 in 2012.
 
That’s 8 percent of the state's workforce making roughly 17 percent of a $4.5 billion payroll.
 
The analysis looked at all compensation — including overtime pay. The review did not include thousands of university employees.
 
It found that the number of workers taking home more than $100,000 grew by 1,100 in 2012.
 
The top earner among the data reviewed was Robert Rupnik. He is chief investment officer for the Teachers' Retirement System. His compensation was $357,000 in 2012.
 
Gov. Pat Quinn's salary was $177,000 — good for 687th place.
