Current wages?

I am trying to figure out what the industry standard wage is for a guy like me! I have been working for my employer for about 7 years now and I am only making $12/HR with the crappiest medical plan I've ever seen! He was supposed to have a SEP account set up for me, but has not put any money in it for years. am I being underpaid? What do you all think I should be making. I handle most of the customer contact and do 99% of the company's work. I'm DOT certified and have taken many educational classes. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Assuming (from your years of experience) that you're familiar with all your local plants, irrigation work comes naturally, and you've got a good head on your shoulders... guy like that around here would be making 15+/hr.

I have to agree with nephilim. Around here your should have no problem getting 15 if you show up and work hard everyday. And know your stuff.
