Web Designer Salary

Hello everyone! Just wondering if anyone had any feedback on what the average starting salary for a junior web designer is in St. Louis. I'm trying to get a sense of what a small web development business should be offering if hiring a web interface designer with 2-3 years of experience and some coding knowledge.

The few results I've found online and in Communication Arts all point out that experience, industry and benefits will vary (obviously). But the figures I've seen cover such a wide range that I don't know which one is more accurate ($45 - $90K). I just wanted to maybe get a better idea directly from people here in St. Louis.

Junior Designer - $38,000 (2011)
