Maybe, maybe not. Was this for a contract or permanent position? Presumably it would be in a metro area. If this was for a rural area and a permanent position it might be a step up for some. You're in the best position to decide if you overreacted or not. I am pretty sure someone will get the job for close to what they're offering so they are probably having a prima donna thread on recruiter-whirler right now.

Subject: Did I overreact?
A recruiter called me last week to discuss a tech. writer position at a
company. She waxed eloquent about this "billion-dollar" company, its
values etc. When we got around to discussing the compensation package,
she quoted a figure of 24 dollars an hour. Needless to say, I was
quite peeved to learn that this "supposed billion dollar company" was
offering me peanuts in exchange for my services.
