Who gets benefits from their employer? 

Here's an interesting statistic: 78% of workers in Minneapolis-St. Paul-St. Cloud metro area have access to a medical care benefit through their employer. The national average is 74%. The survey is experimental, covering 15 large metro areas. Atlanta and Seattle checked in with highs of 84%, Los Angeles at 70%. 70% of Twin Cities (plus St. Cloud) area workers have access to life insurance benefits. The data does not reflect how many participate; that data is judged less reliable.
