FWIW as a recent datapoint: the compensation I was offered was lower 
than what I could have expected in the for-profit sector in my area, but 
not unreasonably so.

When I accepted the offer, I did so knowing that (a) remuneration in the 
non-profit sector is generally lower, and (b) the working conditions 
were generally advantageous to my present situation.  I would expect the 
same holds true of any rational person offered a position or contract.
