Nothing in the cooking/baking industry pays very well, at least not at first. It takes years to earn your chops. Lots of people succeed at it tho, and so can you. Most boutique style bakeries, and advanced confectionaries love newhires with high volume production experience like a large scale bread bakery. Another good option is the hotel/resort scene. You'll learn to bake for catered events and restaurants and in very high volume.

If you love to bake, go bake. The money will find you.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be an 8% growth in the need for bakers between 2021 and 2031. This is a faster rate of growth than the average for all occupations. Mostly this is to make up for bakers leaving the trade or retiring. They expect about 31,300 openings for bakers each year, on average, over the decade.
