Interesting list - who are the largest employers in the metro region? Jewel unsurprisingly tops the list as the largest private employer. UIC tops out as the biggest academic employer, narrowly beating U of C; and while Target has a large number of employees, Wal-Mart doesn't make the list. The rest reads as pretty much a "who's who" of large corporations in Chicago.
