The answer, of course, is "It depends".  There are programmers with 20
of experience I wouldn't pay more than 35K and there are those with
than five years that are probably worth 60K or more.  I'm speaking in
of "Richmond, VA dollars", which are worth considerably more than
Virginia dollars" or "San Francisco dollars".  Geography plays a role
does the amount of programming talent in your area.  If there are a lot
available RPG programmers in the area, your employer, in the typical
short-sightedness common to employers, may feel that if you leave for
higher salary, another programmer can be easily found to replace you. 

If you believe you have the talent to make more than 35K, you should
asking for a raise, and you're doing the right thing getting salaries
comparable people.  Were I you, I'd be looking for another job anyway,
your employer doesn't seem too interested in keeping you happy, which
you're deemed expendable. 

Good luck.
