After getting a report from PayScale, I'm in the 1st percentile for my area. So basically the bottom of the barrel.

How do I tell my employer that my last raise was nowhere near what I expected?

I haven't had a raise in nearly 10 years and I finally got the courage and facts to go demand one. I had my performance review just today and it was a really great review across the board. I ended up FINALLY getting a raise, which was about 3.5%. This would be sufficient had I been getting that type of raise every year or so, but I'm still about 21% in the hole if you are looking at inflation over the last 10 years.

What should I do?
