LANSING (WKZO) -- State employees in Michigan are doing quite well compared to neighboring states.

A study from the American Federation of Teachers puts the average wage in several categories above others in the Midwest.  Foresters in Michigan earn just over 58-thousand a year compared to 34-thousand in Minnesota, while transportation engineers in Michigan earn over 66-thousand and those in Ohio make just under 47-thousand.

The "Lansing State Journal" reports it's unclear how state workers have made impressive gains in pay since the last study in 2008.
