Look up Technical Writer II for your city on salary.com. The national
average can be misleading.

If you're worth considerably more than they're paying you, you'd
probably get more faster by changing jobs. Even if your employer
recognizes that you're underpaid, they'd probably choke on paying you
twice what you were getting three years ago.

If they know you're working for less than you're worth, they won't
want to replace you until they have to. If they don't think you're
worth more than they're paying you, they won't expect you to leave for
a better-paying job.
