Paul Nelson, KSL NewsradioTwo Utah men are being featured in Parade Magazine. The magazine just came out with their annual report of "What people earn".

So how did ski lift mechanic Robert Coleman get the opportunity to grace the pages of Parade Magazine? Basically, someone with the magazine knew his brother.

"She called me and said, ‘You know, I need somebody from your region and I'm honestly kind of in a bind,'" Robert Coleman explains.

Coleman makes a grand total of $23,000 a year.

"The other guys I work with," Coleman says, "they won't care."

Also in the magazine is Salt Lake real estate broker Aaron Jones.

"I'm sure he does better than I do," Coleman says when told Jones was also in the article. In fact, Jones makes $435,000 a year.

When asked if he's ever thought about getting into real estate, Coleman replies: "Uhh, no."

Not only does Jones make more money, he's on the cover of the magazine next to Arnold Schwarzenegger. They both make less than two dead men, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, and the fictional character Harry Potter.
