I'm in an IT position, SQL specifically, and make 59k a year. Does that seem on par? I feel it should be more.

It depends on your skill level.

If you just run pre-built queries then that may be right.

If you are a wizard at querying the DB, and transforming data en masse, then you could easily be paid double than that or more.

Ok, 58k sounds quite low if you are doing this autonomously or semi-autonomously. You may want to target at least a 50% bump.

You my friend are clearly standing out not in a good way.

Any certs? What was your major?

YOE?

Time to fly my friend. It pains me.

You need to have a number in mind (do some additional market research) asap so that you’re prepared for the salary discussions coming up.

Definitely low, many many jobs out there that will pay much more
