Is the job market for astro-physics and astronomy really that bad?

Im currently an undergrad engineer and i know i want to go to graduate school but i kind of hate my current field. one field i am very interested in is astronomy and i am considering perusing a Phd in that field but everything i read says that the job market for astronomy and physics in general is terrible. Is it really that bad?????????

i also read this article that says that astronomers have like a 0% unemployment rate which contradicts everything else i see ----> http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/10-college-maj...

so can anybody give me a clue of how it really is?

Update:

yea i dont really want to just teach..... im more interested in research in any field that i would pursue.
