What kind of day job should I get if I want to be a writer? Jobs in publishing companies or ublishing agencies?

I'm hoping for a job where I'll have lots of free time and enough money to live off of. Would any jobs in publishing companies or publishing agencies give me lots of free time and enough money to live off of?
