How to get out of Web Design/Development?

Hello, I am in need of some advice on how to change jobs/careers out of web site design and development. I have had various temp contract jobs over the past 2 yrs and I am tired of the job security. It seems to me that in 2007, with all this cheesy myspace, youtube, and user generated content, web design is a very broad term, and amateur designers with no background are using the web for crap, and on the other side their is too much software, languages to learn, and each back-end web project is various, to focus on 1 thing, just redudant content management and uploading through an interface. And alot of jobs now are 20hrs.prt time, web designer/SEO, or 20 freelance programming on some stupid intranet, not even worth being a full-time employee. In everyones opinion, is this type of work worth a day job, or just part, contract, remotely from home? Also, how can you transfer into another type of work , when all your skills are web-related? Need serious professional advice.
