Job prospects for physics?
I've decided against pursuing a career as a university professor after seeing how low the odds of actually making it are.
If I were to still study physics (undergrad at least, I will do a master's and/or PhD if necessary), how are the job prospects (chance of getting a job, job security, salary) for industry and government jobs? I'm mainly thinking about jobs that are at least somewhat related to physics & science.
Thanks for the help.

Not as dismal as you may think. I don't know who posted it, but I am sure its easy to find....it was a chart of 2007(I think) physics B.S. graduates and where they were a year later. Of the ones who went for jobs, it said(I think) that 90% of them had a job. Again, dont quote me on that but it didn't look bad at all.
