Two points, first I did say that chemistry guys get all the jobs. Demand and supply is very unfavorable for life scientists. Second, all the well paid jobs are in the industry. Just a few numbers, graduates in life sciences increased 42 % between the 80s and mid 90s. Faculty jobs increased mere 2.5 %, industry jobs around 7 %, however this was partly due to the biotech boom in the 90s, which is a bit declining again. So if you want higher education and money, you should choose your path carefully. Chemistry is still in demand, certain branches of physics, engineering, informatics and so on. Biology is among the losers (and I don't even want to get into academics in the humanities..).
