I've had my doubts about biomedical/pharmaceutical research (what I want to go into) ever since people started realizing that we won't be able to synthesize cures for diseases now that we know their DNA sequence/biochemical pathway as easily as we thought, but now that I'm slowly realizing that there's going to be a lot of competitions for research jobs I'm kinda losing momentum. Then again I live near a lot of public & private pharmaceutical companies which combined make Canada the top drug & vaccine suppliers to the WHO, so maybe (hopefully) I'll be the exception and they'll open their well lined suede arms to me.
Oh well, looks like I'll end up being a freaking doctor or somethig
If I had to guess, you'd probably be better off since your work has to do with human health, which means more money.

This is surely dependent on one's field.
