Default Partially qualified Accountant in early forties

I am a partially qualified (Poly Diploma plus Chartered Secretary plus ACCA level 2) Accountant with more than 20 years of working experience, mainly in MNCs. My salary level is just slightly more than $4.5k per month. Am I grossly underpaid? After I left the company I was working in for more than a decade, I started to ask my peers with similar background and realised that some of them were already getting above $7k. It's really demoralising cause in my line, working long hours without OT pay is the norm rather than the exception. However, most job ads I saw were offering around $4k to $5k. But of course, they were not asking for someone with two decades of experience, mostly asking for around 3 to 6 years of experience.

Some of my peers' profiles:
- Poly with ACCA => VP in foreign bank, >$12k
- Poly with dist learning degree (non-reputable) => Accountant in financial industry,>$7k
- A level => VP in foreign financial institution, >$10k
- Poly with Chartered Secretary => Manager in Company Secretarial firm,>$10k
- NTU degree => Accountant in Medium size firm =>$10k
