The answer, of course, is "It depends". There are programmers with 20 years of experience I wouldn't pay more than 35K and there are those with less than five years that are probably worth 60K or more. I'm speaking in terms of "Richmond, VA dollars", which are worth considerably more than "Northern Virginia dollars" or "San Francisco dollars". Geography plays a role as does the amount of programming talent in your area. If there are a lot of available RPG programmers in the area, your employer, in the typical short-sightedness common to employers, may feel that if you leave for a 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 be asking for a raise, and you're doing the right thing getting salaries of comparable people. Were I you, I'd be looking for another job anyway, as your employer doesn't seem too interested in keeping you happy, which means you're deemed expendable. Good luck. Donald R.
