Example of lack of competitive salaries in Spokane

How much do you think someone with a Masters degree in statistics, marketing, finance, or business administration is likely to be paid for work described as an “executive role”?
Here’s a quote from the job description:
This individual will be working in an executive role with a variety of responsibilities. He or she will be preparing financial forecasts, data analytics, and business case development. This individual will be performing market research using traditional research methods as well as working on cross functional teams. He or she may take on a project management role as well.The most qualified candidate should have a bachelor’s degree in statistics, marketing, finance, business, or a research related field. A master’s degree in the above listed fields is desired.
How much do you think such a job ought to pay?
This position has a wage of $18-$20/hr.
And they want an experienced worker, preferably someone who has been in the banking industry. That is the reality of the Spokane job market.
What a dramatic example of Spokane’s chronic low wages for those not in the government or health care sectors.
