Are There a Lot of Job Opportunities in the Field of Physics?

I'm sixteen and have been finding the area of physics very interesting for about two years now. However, the more I ask my teachers and counselors, the more I'm told to stray away from the area of physics. They tell me that it just isn't worth it to go into the field and that there aren't many jobs directly relating to physics. I would appreciate it if anybody could tell me if this was true or just misinformation. Any response would be great!

    Jan 24 2013: From what I hear there are more jobs for people with doctorates. I have 2 siblings with masters in physics one who works in the field one who does not.
