Am I going to be able to support myself, and possibly a family one day, if I pursue a career in journalism?

My mom would never tell me that I shouldn't chase after my "dream job" because of my potential salary, but she has told me that a career in journalism is one of the lowest paying professions. Should I be concerned, and quite possibly heading into another major?...
